FCBHC Financial Report

FAIRBANKS- A new report commissioned by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services describes the shaky financial management of the Fairbanks Community Behavioral Health Center. It highlights poor business practices as the cause of the closure, however it notes that all operations were legal. The Board President for FCBHC, Barbara Burch, says she is happy the report did not find any evidence of fraud. She says, the report wasn’t a big surprise, ultimately, the non-profit over-stretched their resources and didn't see major problems until it was too late.
