Renown Health Pays $4.2M to Cardiologists Under Settlement
The settlement stems from a Federal Trade Commission ruling in December, in which the agency said Renown's non-compete clauses with cardiologists led the system to have a monopoly-like hold on heart care in the Reno-Sparks area. The FTC forced Renown to release the 12 cardiologists from the non-compete clauses.
The settlement includes Renown's agreement to cover the cardiologists' $827,000 in legal fees. Renown officials also agreed to conduct an investigation of its management team, according to the report.
