USOC Wipes Embattled HealthSouth
CEO’s Name From Building
The USOC in December “quietly removed” former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy’s name from its Richard M. Scrushy/HealthSouth Sports Medicine and Sports Science Center building, a month before Scrushy’s corporate fraud trial was to begin, according to Meri-Jo Borzilleri of the Colorado Springs GAZETTE. Jury selection begins today as Scrushy faces a 58-count indictment on fraud, conspiracy, perjury and “other charges related to his alleged overstating of company profits.” HealthSouth in November asked the USOC to take Scrushy’s name off the building for which it donated $2M toward construction. With the HealthSouth name remaining on the building, Borzilleri writes it is “no surprise” that neither the company nor the USOC are asking or offering to return the money. USOC Chief Communications Officer Darryl Seibel: “Their contribution to the USOC came from the corporation, not from any individual” (Colorado Springs GAZETTE, 1/5).
