Beebe Healthcare learned that a temporary contractor who worked at 3 of Beebe’s physician offices in the Beebe Physician Network since August was previously arrested for incidents related to ID theft in Pennsylvania 4 years ago. The contractor has been terminated and an investigation done – including the hiring of a national forensic expert. No evidence has been found that any patient information was removed from the Beebe Physician Network or used inappropriately. Officials say Beebe will now conduct its own background checks instead of relying on a staffing agency.
