Athenahealth will expand into the Phoenix market with the hiring this year of 120 employees, primarily in client support center analyst roles. Employees will work mostly remotely, with occasional days in the office. Several investment firms wrapped up their acquisition of the company earlier this month for $17 billion. The company was in layoff mode for several years, with facility closures and layoffs in 2017 as Elliott Management closed in, and then again in 2019, as it merged with Virence Health after being acquired by Elliott affiliate Veritas Capital.

A grand jury in Colorado has indicted Helen Benson for filing false tax returns and allegedly stealing over $850,000 from Gunnison Valley Family Physicians, where she worked as an office manager for nearly 15 years. She used the funds to pay off personal credit cards and cash checks made out to herself. She also used the practice’s business credit card for personal expenses and altered its financial records to cover up her failure to repay a $20,000 personal loan made to her by GVFP.
