Hospital employee convicted of theft from hospital foundation
A former Georgetown University Hospital employee was convicted last week of stealing more than $86,000 from a hospital foundation.
Frankie Renee Kennedy, who was employed by the hospital from 1998 to 2010, will spend five months in prison for the theft.
Kennedy ran the hospital’s Transplant Institute Foundation, an institution that helped poor transplant patients.
Since 2005, Kennedy wrote herself checks from the foundation and used a doctor’s signature stamp, without his knowledge, to sign the checks.
Kennedy plead guilty in last November and has agreed to pay full restitution.
