From The Wichita Eagle, “A prominent Wichita woman embezzled millions of dollars from two physician-owned businesses that provide services at Wesley Medical Center, a lawsuit says.
An accounting firm’s investigation found that from 2012 through 2017, “Nancy Martin had embezzled millions of dollars from ESPA and MKWS on a regular and systematic basis,” says the lawsuit.
“MKWS conducted its own investigation for the time period of 2006 through 2012 and discovered that Nancy Martin had embezzled millions more,” the lawsuit says.
Martin was business administrator for ESPA for more than 30 years and business administrator of MKWS since it began in 1997. She oversaw operations for the physician owners by handling the books, records and payroll; paying bills; writing checks and reconciling bank accounts, the lawsuit says.
“Nancy Martin’s embezzlement consisted of not only issuing ESPA and MKWS checks to herself, but to others that directly benefited her, Tom Martin and their corporate Entities,” it says.”
