Beverly pleads not guilty

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A former south Georgia hospital CEO pleads not guilty to federal fraud charges.

In a statement released to the media after his arraignment in Albany Federal Court today, Ken Beverly claims he passed a polygraph test.

The former administrator at Archbold Memorial Hospital pleaded not guilty to all six counts in the indictment and was released without bond.

Prosecutors say he falsified documents to get Archbold $9 million in Medicaid money to which the hospital was not entitled.

 Statement by Ken Beverly

Thank you for the opportunity to comment. Today I pled not guilty to the allegations in the indictment.

Primarily, Mary Jo and I greatly appreciate the support, encouragement and prayers we've received from our friends and family.

While I am limited to what I can say with regard to the case, I have willingly participated in – and passed – a polygraph examination administered by a nationally-renowned former Special Agent and polygraph examiner with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

I am requesting an expedited trial so I can address the charges head-on, prove them false and move forward with my life.

It disturbs me greatly that the family of Archbold Medical Center, a superior organization of physicians, nurses, administrators and trustees, is unjustly having this shadow cast upon its outstanding reputation.
