Judge acquits former ACHCA chair of alleged corruption charges

Former American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) chairman Larry Slatky was acquitted of alleged corruption charges by a Nassau, N.Y., judge last week. In 2014, Slatky was charged with allegedly giving a laundry contract for a publicly run nursing home to a friend's company instead of hiring the lowest bidder.

Slatky had faced two misdemeanor charges of official misconduct following the 2014 indictment, according to Newsday. At the time of the indictment, Slatky, then the chief operating officer of NuHealth, had been accused of violating a procurement policy through his choice of laundry service provider.
