Syracuse, N.Y. - A St. Joseph’s Hospital cardiologist has been charged in a nationwide prescription drug crackdown.
Andrew Rudin, who worked at St. Joseph’s and Oswego Health in their cardiology departments, was charged along with two others for unlawfully distributing controlled substances.
Rudin allowed a nurse practitioner to list him as a supervising physician, at a medical group. He received money in exchange. St. Joseph's says Rudin’s charges are unrelated to his work there but he has been placed on administrative leave. In all, 60 people were accused nationwide.
