PROVIDENCE, R.I.—The U.S. Supreme Court won't hear the appeal of a former hospital executive from Providence convicted of corruption.

The high court announced Monday that it would not take up the case of Robert Urciuoli (Uhr-see-OLE'-ee), the former president and CEO of Roger Williams Medical Center.

Urciuoli was convicted of paying a state senator to do the hospital's bidding at the Statehouse, and a federal appeals court this year upheld the jury's verdict.

Urciuoli is serving a three-year prison sentence in Florida.
