U.S. Gov’t Likely to Join Suit Against Methodist Le Bonheur


The U.S. government Wednesday, Sept. 22, said it is considering filing a motion to intervene in the whistleblower case against Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare and former signatories, including former CEO Gary Shorb and former CFO Chris McLean. The attorney for the U.S. said she hoped to file within a week or so. A lawyer for the state of Tennessee said the state is also likely to intervene. The suit, a qui tam case, was filed by a former CEO of Methodist University Hospital and the former dean of the School of Medicine at University of Tennessee Health Science Center, alleging that Methodist enticed West Cancer Center to send it more than $1.5 billion in business between 2012-2018 by rewarding its physicians with kickbacks.
