Accountant Accused Of Million Dollar Embezzlement

GRAND RAPIDS (WWJ) – An accountant working for Munson Healthcare in Traverse City is accused of embezzling more than a million dollars from the healthcare provider.

No charges have been filed, but the disclosure was made last week in federal court in Grand Rapids.

The Associated Press reports that in a court filing, IRS agent Brittany Hofstra says Munson’s loss totals $1.1 million.

The accountant, who’s been suspended, had access to accounts belonging to Munson and the Munson Foundation.

The accountant was also responsible for paying payroll taxes and making deposits into employee retirement plans.
