Two more former executives of Vermont’s largest hospital have been charged with misleading state regulators about the true cost of Fletcher Allen’s expansion project. Former chief financial officer David Cox and former senior vice president David Demers have been charged in federal court with conspiring to lie to health care regulators.
Demers has agreed to plead guilty and cooperate with prosecutors about the Renaissance Project. The charges follow a guilty plea last month by former chief executive officer William Boettcher to similar charges. Boettcher faces a jail term of less than two years and will make a payment of $733,000 to the hospital. He will be sentenced in April.
