05:11 EDTHMAHealth Management issues statement in response to "60 Minutes" report
Health Management Associates commented on a report regarding the company on the television program 60 Minutes. According to their report, 60 Minutes conducted more than a year of research and found no issues with the quality of care at Health Management hospitals, stating on the broadcast that "hardly anyone we talked to complained about the quality of care at HMA hospitals." It was also notable that 60 Minutes failed to identify a single patient who had been inappropriately admitted from any of the company's emergency rooms, including by the physicians interviewed. Neither 60 Minutes nor the physicians interviewed identified any admission decision in which a physician's medical judgment was overridden by an HMA executive, much less to defraud Medicare. 60 Minutes did not in any way dispute the admissions data it was provided by Health Management over the last several months. That data demonstrated that admissions rates from the company's emergency rooms were in-line with national norms and consistent over a several year period. Instead, 60 Minutes relied entirely on disgruntled former employees of the company and former contracted physicians, several of whom are seeking financial gain through active litigation with Health Management.
