Hope Abram, a former revenue cycle director at Lewes, Del.-based Beebe Healthcare, has been sentenced to prison for embezzling more than $100,000 from Beebe Healthcare, according to the Salisbury Daily Times.

Ms. Abram was arrested earlier this year after Beebe Healthcare officials alerted police of a potential internal embezzlement. A standard audit of receivables and payments pointed to several irregularities tied to Ms. Abram. She recently pleaded guilty to theft of greater than $100,000 in connection with the incidents.

Between February and May of 2017, Ms. Abram requested refund checks for fictitious people. When the checks were returned, she deposited them into her personal account.

Ms. Abram was sentenced to 25 years in prison, but much of it was suspended. She will serve two years in federal prison followed by home confinement. In addition to the prison term, Ms. Abram was ordered to pay $201,451 in restitution, according to the report.
