Sacred Heart Hospital closes amid fraud scandal

Sacred Heart Hospital on Chicago’s West Side is closing its doors tonight.

Employees got notice this afternoon, and the eight remaining patients are being moved.

The hospital is embroiled in a Medicaid and Medicare fraud scandal.

After  an FBI raid in April, two executives and four doctors were arrested.

They’re accused of approving unneeded and even dangerous surgeries.
