For eight years Dr. Ho Chung Tu, a neonatologist, treated premature babies at Mount Sinai Hospital in Miami Beach. Under an arrangement with Mount Sinai, Tu treated the babies in the hospital because of their delicate condition, but charged patients for his services separately, making as much as $800,000 a year.
In 1989, the hospital hired two salaried staff neonatologists and got rid of Tu. He sued. Friday, a jury agreed with his claim that Mount Sinai stole his practice and awarded the physician $2 million in damages.
