State, Feds investigate Archbold

Thomasville --  After a dropped lawsuit and the resignation of an executive, Archbold Memorial Hospital now faces a criminal investigation.

Archbold's Chief Financial Officer, William Sellers, resigned in February after an internal investigation revealed he prepared false documents to get supplemental Medicaid Funds for the hospital.

A lawsuit against the hospital was dropped after they agreed never to deny an open records request again.

Now, stemming from that fraudulent activity, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent from the State Health Care Fraud Control Unit says they have opened a criminal investigation involving the hospital in conjunction with the FBI.

Archbold says they are cooperating with the investigation.
