There was a time when Dr. James Montagano was known as "Mr. Midway." But that moniker vanished when this slight, intense physician in his mid-40s--who plays violin in a physicians orchestra and is building an elaborate Italianate garden behind his Hollywood Hills home--blew the whistle on his colleagues at Midway Hospital in West Los Angeles.

Tenet, which acquired OrNda for $3.2 billion in January, wasn't accused of any wrongdoing by the Justice Department. The settlement didn't include any admission of improper conduct.

Noting my interest in stupid criminal tricks, Dr. James Montagano of L.A. mentioned an ex-con patient of his who said he had been featured in a book about such celebrated cases. Of course, the fellow, a bank robber, really owed his fame -- such as it was -- to his inexperienced getaway driver.
