The chief compliance officer of one of the nation’s largest health care systems discovered that a high-ranking employee had been embezzling millions of dollars from the system over the course of almost 15 years. The employee had been hired by his mother to work for the health care system after he had been disbarred for fraud. Michael Wynne completed an internal investigation within days and presented the case to the highest levels of the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The high-ranking employee was apprehended at the airport, returning from a lavish international trip and was prosecuted immediately and a significant amount of property was recovered. The otherwise embarrassing matter received limited and obscure press coverage, avoiding otherwise harmful reputation damage.
