NORTHSHORE UNIVERSITY HEALTHSYSTEM SETTLES WITH 3 VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ABUSE BY OB/GYN FABIO ORTEGA

NorthShore University HealthSystem has settled with three more of our clients who claim they were sexually assaulted by Dr. Fabio Ortega, an OB/GYN who practiced at NorthShore’s Skokie, Evanston and Lincolnwood offices, and Evanston Hospital.

One NorthShore University HealthSystem patient alleged she was sexually assaulted by Dr. Ortega at Evanston Hospital just house after she gave birth to her daughter. That patient, and another patient, claimed that NorthShore knew about Ortega’s sexually perverted conduct and allowed him to see patients even while he was under investigation for sexual assault. In fact, Dr. Richard Silver who heads the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology met with Ortega and continued to allow him to see women without a chaperone. Allegations include touching women’s vaginas, grabbing their breasts, and asking them sexually perverted questions under the guise of performing proper pelvic exams.

Ortega is facing two charges of sexual assault in Cook County. NorthShore continues to stand-by gynecologist Dr. Ortega and is defending itself, and him, in legal proceedings. Swedish Covenant Health where Ortega worked before going to NorthShore is also defending Ortega is two lawsuits.
