A Northwell Health employee was arraigned Saturday for allegedly using corporate credit cards to make more than $50,000 worth of personal purchases.
Rosalyn Persaud of Rosedale, 34, had access to six JP Morgan credit cards as an executive assistant for Northwell’s perioperative services division at 1979 Marcus Ave. in New Hyde Park.
Persaud allegedly used four of the cards to make purchases for herself without Northwell’s permission between Dec. 1, 2013, and Dec. 11, 2015.
She then made false entries into Northwell’s business records to hide the purchases, police said.
Persaud was arrested without incident at her home Jan. 15 and charged with second-degree grand larceny and falsifying business records. She is due back in court Jan. 20.
Northwell spokesman Terry Lynam said the company discovered some of Persaud’s suspicious purchases on Dec. 11 and reported them to police. She was fired Dec. 14.
Lynam said Persaud had worked with Northwell Health, formerly the North Shore-LIJ Health System, for 13 years.
Before starting her executive assistant position in September 2013 — three months before she allegedly started making illegal purchases — she was a Northwell unit support associate in Glen Cove, according to her LinkedIn profile.
