ProMedica ordered to pay late payments to Ohio medical school, faces potential state lawsuit

Ohio's attorney general, Dave Yost, ordered Toledo, Ohio-based ProMedica to pay at least one of the two $3.8 million monthly payments it owes to the University of Toledo's College of Medicine and Life Sciences within the next seven days to avoid a state-issued lawsuit, CBS affiliate WTOL11 reported Sept. 21.

ProMedica and the university entered an affiliate agreement in 2015 that involves monthly payments in exchange for staffing at ProMedica's Toledo Hospital and Toledo Children's Hospital from University of Toledo medical faculty. These payments account for 44 percent of the medical school's budget, Mr. Yost told the publication. 

ProMedica said it has revoked payments for the months August and September for recoup money due to insufficient reimbursement payments from the University of Toledo. The reimbursement payments are "for expenses associated with supporting the agreement on our campus," a ProMedica spokesperson told WTOL11.
