JGH confirms investigation into billing scam

The Jewish General Hospital is confirming a media report about a billing scam, saying the fake invoices were identified months ago and full reimbursement has already been obtained.

The hospital says that in addition to launching its own internal investigation last fall, it alerted the UPAQ anti-corruption squad.

Radio Canada says two hospital managers resigned after the scam came to light. The report indicates that one invoice was for $50,000 worth of renovation work never done at the hospital and another was for painting done at the home of a senior executive.

    So they resigned. Were they arrested and charged with fraud and theft? If not, then WHY NOT? These so-called managers must be set as an example to others that do the same.
