Universal Health facilities get government subpoenas

Posted: March 07, 2013

Universal Health Services Inc., a King of Prussia operator of hospitals and behavioral health facilities, said 10 of its locations in Pennsylvania, Florida, Illinois, North Carolina and Virginia had received subpoenas last month from the Office of Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The subpoenas requested documents from January 2008 to the present, UHS said in its annual report filed with the Securities & Exchange Commission last week.

The company, which did not respond to a request for comment, said in the filing that it did not know what the government was examining.

Two UHS facilities in North Carolina were notified last year that the U.S. Department of Justice is pursuing an investigation following an earlier request for documents. One of the North Carolina facilities was closed and sold in January, UHS said.
