“We contacted Ohle’s attorney, Gus Centrone of Centrone & Shrader who informed us, “What’s strange is when Miss Ohle questioned the charges, Bayfront told her she didn’t owe them but then turned around and sued her.”
According to Pinellas County records Bayfront did indeed file a small claims lawsuit against Ohle in January of this year. Centrone also added that having spoken to other parents of babies delivered at Bayfront, especially triplets who are a “community amongst themselves” many were also billed for similar charges. Bayfront informed those they were either a mistake or billed simply as a matter of course.
“It appears Bayfront haven’t got a straight story and seem unsure of their actual policy,” Centrone said.
