Former NM hospital exec sued over missing $3.2M

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A recently filed lawsuit accuses a former executive at a New Mexico hospital of bilking the care center out of more than $3 million by funneling the money through companies he owned in Arizona, Texas and New Mexico.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that the lawsuit against Richard Crabtree was filed Friday by Great American Insurance Co.

The lawsuit says that Crabtree and other defendants engaged in a "pervasive scheme" to misappropriate money from Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center by billing and collecting at least $3.2 million for claimed services that either weren't provided or were grossly inflated.

Crabtree was fired from the hospital in 2008 without explanation and now lives in Castle Rock, Colo. He did not respond to several phone messages at his home.
