Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Inc. has agreed to pay $2.75 million to settle allegations that it filed false claims to federal health benefits programs for nearly two years, the U.S. attorney for Maryland announced Tuesday. From July 2005 though February 2007, Bayview employees claimed that patients were treated for ailments they did not have, including malnutrition and acute respiratory failure, according to the settlement agreement. The claims inflated the severity of the center's case mix and, therefore, the rates at which it was reimbursed under schedules set by the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission.

Patient First, an urgent care chain, opens a new center this morning on the campus of Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center -- its first facility on the grounds of a hospital and its first in Baltimore City. Bayview sought out Patient First, seeing it not as competition but as a mechanism to unclog its crowded emergency department. The Bayview opening heralds a new burst of growth for Patient First, which opened five urgent care centers in the Baltimore area a decade ago but had not built any since.

Sixty workers at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center lost their jobs last week after the hospital closed its skilled nursing facility division where patients go for rehabilitation after a hospital stay. The hospital said its skilled nursing unit has faced financial challenges for several years and has shrunk from 200 beds in the mid-1980s to fewer than 50 last year. "We had to look carefully at this program and decided to close the 38-remaining facility beds," Hopkins said Monday in a statement.

Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center has closed its well-regarded drug detoxification center and is expanding its methadone treatment program, a move that reflects a shift in the city's drug treatment policy. Hundreds of addicts were weaned off of drugs during stays of 10 days to two weeks at the detox center. But city drug treatment officials say the unit did not adequately meet the needs of the city's hardcore addicts, many of whom require more support than detoxification. They also say public dollars would be better spent on long-term drug treatment, which can last up to a year and includes services such as methadone maintenance, counseling, job training and the use of buprenorphine, a prescription drug that cuts clients' craving for heroin.
