Description

This report revealed how the two major health care systems in Roanoke concealed wrongful death lawsuits against them, after they agreed to settle the claims of medical malpractice. To do this, the hospitals had the lawsuits dropped quietly in the court where they were filed. They then went to out-of-town courthouses to settle the cases, largely out of public view.
