LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kosair Charities has filed a lawsuit against Norton Healthcare accusing it of misspending donations and refusing to provide an account of how contributions to Kosair Children's Hospital are spent.
Kosair Charities President Randy Coe says the organization has given $114 million in contributions to the Louisville children's hospital over the years. The lawsuit accuses Norton of not spending all of the donations on the children's hospital.
Norton spokesman Thomas Johnson told The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1m5Vlrx) that the allegations are "preposterous."
He said the charity is able to "specifically designate" how a significant portion of the contributions are spent. He said the rest is spent according to terms of an agreement.
The lawsuit asks for the return of any money found to have been used in violation of the agreement.
