Not-for-profit regional hospital South Miami Hospital agreed to pay approximately $12 million to settle allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by submitting false claims to federal healthcare programs for medically unnecessary electrophysiology studies and other procedures allegedly performed by Dr. John R. Dylewski.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by South Miami Hospital doctors James A. Burks and James D. Davenport.  They will receive a whistleblower award of roughly $2,748,500 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (SDFL)
