2016 Transaction of the Year, Non-Profit Award Winner: Tuomey

Founded in 1913, Tuomey is a "sole community provider" general acute care hospital in rural South Carolina. So rural that the closest hospitals providing comparable care are a one-hour drive away. Tuomey's financial stability began to deteriorate in 2007 when the qui tam complaint in the United States ex rel. Drakeford v. Tuomey ("Drakeford") was unsealed. The Drakeford judgment, together with continuing cash operating losses from Tuomey's operations, left Tuomey insolvent. Further, Tuomey lost its long-standing senior officers and outside law firm due to DOJ demands during settlement negotiations. On top of causing insolvency and a leadership vacuum, the Drakeford judgment effectively gave the DOJ the ability to shut Tuomey down by excluding it from the Medicare program.

In the 15-minute podcast, hear from key players in the Tuomey Transaction on how they overcame these challenges to bring Tuomey out of insolvency.

Listen to the podcast titled, "Deep Dive into the Tuomey Healthcare System".
