Former Chicago Hospital CEO Pleads Guilty to Perjury

On Behalf of | Sep 24, 2015 | Hospital Negligence |

Peter Rogan is finally doing the jail time he owes for crimes committed. He headed Edgewater Hospital during the time a massive cardiology scheme was carried out by Dr. Andrew Cubria. With the assent of the administration, Dr. Cubria performed hundreds of unnecessary catheterizations, one of which caused the death of our firm’s client, Albert Okaro. The hospital administration paid Dr. Cubria for his unnecessary procedures that allowed the hospital to generate millions of fraudulent billings to Medicare and insurers.

While the Okaro family received a full measure of compensation from the civil justice system, we are very pleased that prosecutors persisted in obtaining a criminal conviction of Peter Rogan, a bad man.
