Cathedral Henderson was responsible for the scheduling of nearly 2,700 patients at the Charlie Norwood VA Hospital in Augusta, Georgia.
The 50-count indictment against Henderson alleges he canceled patients’ medical appointments, falsely stated that services had been completed or that patients refused services.
This trial is the next development in a series of issues at Charlie Norwood. In 2011, scheduling problems at the Augusta VA led to three deaths. Norwood became one of more than 100 Veterans Affairs hospitals nationwide to be investigated in 2014.
