NEW YORK, Dec. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of United Health Services, Inc. ("UHS" or the "Company"). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether UHS and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On December 7, 2016, Buzzfeed published an article regarding United Health "based on interviews with 175 current and former UHS staff, including 18 executives who ran UHS hospitals; more than 120 additional interviews with patients, government investigators, and other experts; and a cache of internal documents." According to the Buzzfeed article, "[c]urrent and former employees from at least 10 UHS hospitals in nine states said they were under pressure to fill beds by almost any method – which sometimes meant exaggerating people's symptoms or twisting their words to make them seem suicidal – and to hold them until their insurance payments ran out."
On this news, Universal Health's share price fell $15.01, or 11.88%, to close at $111.36 on December 7, 2016.
