This is only the tip of the iceberg, plan on seeing mulitiple lawsuits in New Mexico which has a history of huge verdicts over 50 million. These guys wanted to use the previous owners Medicare/Medicaid numbers for billing. Lastly healthcare meana taking care of patients. Facility budget cuts were enforced even though hundreds of thousands of dollars were mispent on rennovations for the fleecing of Med A. Key company officials were fired for showing corporate not management company behaviors. It's a shell game and the clock is ticking.
