DALLAS (KRLD) – Bribes, kickbacks, doctors and executives all come together in a huge federal indictment.
The indictment is fallout from both the bankruptcy of the Forest Park Medical Center…near LBJ and 75-Central …and the fraud conviction earlier this year of anesthesiologist Dr. Richard Toussaint. In all 21 different physicians, surgeons and executives are accused of forking out around 40-million dollars in bribes in kickbacks.
“It’s a huge conspiracy among healthcare professionals in the area and employees and executives at Forest Park Medical Center involved in a kickback and bribe scheme worth millions and millions of dollars,” KRLD legal analyst Ed Klein says.
Up to $200 million in business, the indictment says. The scheme includes a plan to sell patients to other hospitals to collect money.
