Here's a little about Mr. Scott from Wikipedia:
Columbia/HCA fraud cases
Numerous New York Times stories, beginning in 1996, described improper business and Medicare billing practices of Columbia/HCA. In the spring of 1997, federal agents conducted document raids on several Columbia facilities. In 1997, altogether, Federal investigators seized records from more than two dozen facilities of the company, in Oklahoma and six other states.
In July 1997, Scott, then the Chairman and CEO of Columbia/HCA, was forced out by the company's board of directors. He left with a $10 million severance package and 10 million shares of stock, most of which were from his initial investment before the company was taken public. At the time, the shares were worth more than $300 million. Scott was replaced by Dr. Thomas Frist, Jr., the co-founder of HCA  and the brother of Senator Bill Frist, then Majority Leader in the U.S. Senate. In 1999, Columbia/HCA changed its name back to HCA, Inc.
In 2001, HCA reached a plea agreement with the U.S. government that avoided criminal charges against the company and included $95 million in fines.  In late 2002, HCA agreed to pay the U.S. government $631 million, plus interest, and pay $17.5 million to state Medicaid agencies, in addition to $250 million paid up to that point to resolve outstanding Medicare expense claims. In all, civil law suits cost HCA more than $1.7 billion to settle, including more than $500 million paid in 2003 to two whistleblowers.Here's what Rachel Maddow had last night.
Thanks to Gordon at Alternate Brain for the heads-up on this.
