Settlements Near In Unnecessary Stents Lawsuits

BALTIMORE (AP) — Court documents show that settlements in two class-action lawsuits over unnecessary artery stents at a Towson hospital are awaiting court approval.

The former owner of St. Joseph Medical Center tells The Daily Record that agreements have been reached to resolve cases in federal and city courts in Baltimore.

The settlements will include Catholic Health Initiatives Inc., St. Joseph and former cardiologist Mark Midei, who performed many of the stent operations.

Terms of the settlements were not disclosed.

In 2010, the hospital notified more than 500 patients that they may have been given unnecessary stents. Midei’s medical license was revoked in 2011.
