Wimbledon Health Partners, LLC, is a company based in Boca Raton, FL, that conducts in-office diagnostic testing for physicians. The company took out a $2 million credit line from Compass Bank on November 17, 2016, and was in default by December 1. Compass Bank filed suit on January 4, 2018, just two months after the loan.
On November 29, 2016, the company’s office was raided by the FBI. The company was under investigation for healthcare fraud, and according to a local TV station, agents removed boxes of documentation. Their website has been suspended.
Comments on employment sites Glassdoor and Indeed indicate that the company experienced high turnover, engaged in “shady practices” and was a hostile place to work.
