Largest hospital company in the world faces manipulation charges


HCA, the largest hospital management company in the world, is facing SEC charges that it made up thousands of payments for fake nursing shifts. In an exclusive report, The Washington Post said the probe focuses on the company's operations in London.

This is not the first time HCA has been involved in wrongdoing; in the mid-1990s the company was found to have committed a huge health-care fraud and fined $1.7 billion in penalties. Then in 2006, several equity firms paid $33 billion to take HCA private.
