Redwood Falls exec accused of double-dip on travel

REDWOOD FALLS, Minn. — The chief executive of a Redwood Falls hospital has been charged with theft for allegedly double-dipping on travel expenses.

Jim Schulte was charged Monday in Redwood County District Court with two gross misdemeanor counts, KLGR reported. Schulte heads Redwood Area Hospital.

A criminal complaint accuses Schulte of being reimbursed about $1,000 by a medical imaging equipment company for travel from August 2010 through November 2011. Schulte is a director for the company, Central Minnesota Diagnostic Inc.

The complaint says Schulte also filed for reimbursement from the city for the same trips, and the city paid. The hospital is city-owned.

Schulte did not immediately respond to a message left at his home seeking comment Tuesday. KLGR reported he is on unpaid administrative leave.
