Pennsylvania hospital facing two U.S. probes
The Western Pennsylvania Hospital-Forbes Regional Campus is the subject of investigations by two federal entities for "potentially erroneous evaluation and management claims," according to a financial document released by Forbes' parent, the West Penn Allegheny Health System. According to the document, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Pennsylvania and the inspector general's office for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services notified Forbes officials of the investigation in January. WPAHS spokeswoman Stephanie Waite told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that, "We are currently in the process of analyzing the data relative to this issue and the applicable regulations."
