A Fort Lauderdale federal grand jury has slapped a subpoena on Broward Health, demanding records related to an ongoing FBI investigation focused on its purchasing practices, two knowledgeable sources have told FloridaBulldog.org.
The subpoena, served earlier this month, is said to seek information about former hospital district procurement officer Brian Bravo and 16 companies that do business with Broward Health. They include MedAssets, a Georgia-based group purchasing organization for the Broward system and other hospitals (NASDAQ: MDAS) with a market capitalization of $1.87 billion.
The name of veteran Assistant U.S. Attorney Neil Karadbil is on the subpoena.
“I’m told the (administrative) staff is on shutdown, spending hours finding all these documents,” one source said.
