In 1984 Richard Marin Scrushy founded HealthSouth Corporation, a global healthcare company based in Birmingham, Alabama. By the early 1990s, the company had expanded to each of the 50 U.S states.

Over the next decade, HealthSouth’s sports medicine programs received international attention by being linked to star athletes including Bo Jackson, who served as the president of HealthSouth’s Sports Medicine Council. At its height, HealthSouth was the “nation’s largest provider of outpatient surgery and rehabilitative and diagnostic healthcare services” and had expanded to Puerto Rico, Australia, and the United Kingdom. As a result of the business success, Richard Scrushy became the third highest paid CEO in the United States.

In October of 2005, Scrushy was indicted along with former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman by a federal grand jury in Montgomery, Alabama. Scrushy pleaded not guilty to all charges, but was convicted along with Siegelman in June 2006. On July 25, 2012, Scrushy was released from federal custody.

Scrushy and his wife, Leslie, have 9 children.
