HMA Wins Dismissal of Lawsuit

Naples Daily News

A federal judge has thrown out a complaint by a former hospital executive at Physicians Regional in Collier County against the parent corporation Health Management Associates, the Naples Daily Newsreports. The suit had alleged the hospital system of paying kickbacks to doctors for referrals, but the judge ruled there was not enough evidence to proceed to trial.  

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
