Ex-Pennsylvania health system COO charged in $1.3M fraud scheme

-

The former COO of Butler (Pa.) Health System has been indicted on several charges, including embezzlement, mail fraud and money laundering, according to the Department of Justice.

Stephanie Roskovski, former COO of BHS, and her husband defrauded the health system of more than $1.3 million from 2011 through December 2017, according to the 37-count indictment.

According to the indictment, the couple used Ms. Roskovski’s corporate credit card for $1.3 million in personal expenses, including family vacations and a motorcross business, and submitted those expenses to BHS for reimbursement. Ms. Roskovski allegedly altered receipts or created fake receipts to make the personal expenses appear to be work-related, according to TribLIVE.

The indictment also accuses the couple of attempting to conceal the alleged theft and making false statements in two loan applications, according to the Justice Department.
