Dr. William Harwin was charged with participating in a conspiracy to suppress and eliminate competition by agreeing to allocate the provision of medical and radiation oncology services. While he was President and Managing Physician Partner of Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS), Harwin and his co-conspirators agreed not to compete to provide chemotherapy and radiation treatments to cancer patients in Southwest Florida. Beginning as early as 1999 and continuing until at least 2016, Harwin entered into an illegal agreement that allocated chemotherapy treatments to FCS and radiation treatments to a competing oncology group.
