Deputies: Trinity clinic manager pocketed patient co-pays

TRINITY — Within five years, a manager at an urgent care clinic pocketed more than $58,000 in cash paid by patients, authorities said.

Nancy L. Albiter, 46, was arrested Tuesday and charged with scheme to defraud.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office said Albiter worked as a shift leader at the Morton Plant Mease Immediate Care Center at 1306 Seven Springs Blvd. Between January 2005 and February 2010, Albiter stole the money by altering the "daily patient sign-in records by deleting patients that paid in cash," a Sheriff's Office report said.

Albiter also stole money intended for deposit in the bank, the report said.

This is Albiter's first arrest in Florida. She did not return a call for comment Wednesday.

Morton Plant Mease spokeswoman Beth Hardy said the agency did an internal investigation before contacting law enforcement. She said she couldn't say what tipped off staff members because the case is ongoing. "We are aware of the situation, and we take it very seriously," Hardy said.

Albiter is no longer an employee, Hardy said.

Albiter, of in Hudson, was released from the Pasco jail Tuesday on $50,000 bail.

Times researcher Natalie Watson contributed to this story.
