CROSS RIVER, N.Y. April 30 2012— Donna Rubino, a longtime employee of Four Winds Hospital in Cross River, was charged Wednesday with stealing more than $40,000 from the facility by falsifying records, the New York State Police said.
Rubino, 49, of Wingdale in Dutchess County, was charged with third-degree grand larceny, a class D felony, as a result of a fraud investigation that the state police conducted at the hospital, which treats children and adults with mental health issues.
The state police said Rubino falsified multiple business records over the past four years while working as Four Winds’ director of patient accounts, allowing her to steal more than $40,000 from the hospital.
Rubino, who worked for the hospital for 26 years, was arrested by Investigator John Rodriguez of the Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
She was arraigned before Justice Ralph Mackin in North Salem Town Court and was sent to the Westchester County jail on $50,000 bail.
Rubino is scheduled to appear Monday, April 30, in Lewisboro Town Court.
