The Blade incorrectly linked The University of Toledo Medical Center to an opioid prescription drug and health-care fraud scheme involving several doctors practicing in the Detroit area in an article in Friday’s newspaper.
Dr. Spilios John Pappas has not been a member of the UT faculty or practiced medicine for UTMC since Oct. 31, 2011.
The U.S. Department of Justice case in which Pappas is involved relates to his work after leaving the University.
The safety of our patients and the professionalism of our faculty and staff are of the utmost importance to UT and the UT Medical Center.
The University is requesting a retraction from the newspaper.
