Hope Abram, a former revenue cycle director at Lewes, Del.-based Beebe Healthcare, was arrested and charged with embezzling $150,000 from the hospital, reports DelmarvaNow.

On April 23, Beebe officials alerted the Lewes Police Department of a potential internal embezzlement. A standard audit of receivables and payments pointed to a "number of irregularities" tied to Ms. Abram.

The investigation revealed Ms. Abram allegedly embezzled thousands through various means. Following the investigation, Ms. Abram was fired.

Ms. Abram has been charged with theft over $50,000, second degree forgery and falsifying business records.

"Although not an insignificant amount, both our auditors and the police believe that Beebe's policies, processes and financial controls have limited the economic damages caused by Ms. Abram's acts," Beebe officials said in a statement, according to DelmarvaNow.
