Rick Scott's past brush with Medicare fraud happened too long ago to be an issue in his campaign for governor, says a local medical industry leader. Joe Pinion, CEO of the Physicians Regional hospitals in North and East Naples, is this week’s guest on "One on One with Jeff Lytle.'' Pinion also sizes up his hospitals' new ad campaign, national health care reform and the impact of the economy on local health habits and treatment. This is an edited transcript of the first half; video highlights as well as partial video/texts of past interviews are available at naplesnews.com/oneonone. The entire 30-minute program airs Sunday at noon on Comcast CN14. Lytle is editorial page/Perspective editor of the Daily News.
