Excela Health paid $2 million to the federal government in a settlement over Medicare payments for stenting procedures at its Greensburg, Pa., hospital. The health system had questioned the necessity of some procedures, prompting a federal investigation and the eventual settlement. "Since our disclosure, Excela's quality improvements have resulted in a national accreditation of our cardiac catheterization laboratory, which we were the first in the state to receive," said Excela CEO Robert Rogalski. "Our commitment to maintaining that quality is unwavering."
