I mentioned this on Twitter this week, but I find it interesting enough to point out here, as well: Forest Park Medical Center co-founder Wade Barker made an appearance on D Magazine’s 100 Most Expensive Homes in Dallas list. At just about $12.5 million, his humble lair ranks No. 52, with 11 fireplaces tucked into 16,000 square feet. That feature, put together by D Editor Tim Rogers, is here.
Barker was one of 21 people indicted in the massive kickback scheme at now-bankrupt Forest Park, the fallout from which continues to work itself out in the courts. Another pin fell last week, as the Dallas Morning News reported, when a west Texas chiropractor pled guilty to aggressively referring spinal surgery candidates to a Forest Park-affiliated spine surgeon in exchange for kickbacks and bribes. Five people have now pled guilty; Barker is not one of them.
