CEO Gets 25 Years for Fraud

The former CEO of Hollywood Pavilion psychiatric facility who was found guilty of $67-million Medicare fraud in June had asked that she be sentenced to house arrest in her waterfront mansion. Instead,  Karen Kallen-Zury, 60, was sentenced to 25 years in prison and ordered to repay the $40 million she stole, according to the Miami Herald (paywall alert)

Daisy Miller, former inpatient clinical director, was given a 15-year sentence, and therapist/administrator Christian Coloma, 12 years.

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.
