PUTNAM COUNTY, MO – A judge has dismissed a case brought against the Missouri State Auditor’s office.

Auditor, Nicole Galloway, said in an information release, an audit reportedly uncovered a billing scheme perpetrated by Hospital Partners Inc. in 2017. Partners Inc. filed the law suit the following year. Galloway says the group was attempting to prevent details of the case from being known to Missourians.

The audit purportedly revealed a $90 million scheme at Putnam County Memorial Hospital. The suit filed by Partners Inc. against the auditor and hospital board, was dismissed Monday.
