UPDATE: WRTV has confirmed that the raids taking place today involves numerous other locations, in addition to Burkhart's sprawling Carmel mansion, and includes the participation of IRS agents and officials of the federal Department of Health & Human Services.
The Marion Co. Health & Hospital Corporation released this statement to WRTV stating that neither it or its employees are the subject of this investigation:
Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County (HHC) is aware of the investigation of James G. Burkhart, CEO of American Senior Communities. American Senior Communities is one of the largest nursing home management companies in the state of Indiana. HHC has contracted with ASC to operate and manage nursing home facilities owned by HHC.
HHC is assured that HHC and its employees are not the target or subject of any investigation and that this investigation is not related to the care that any patient has received at any of HHC’s nursing homes. Moreover, this investigation will not impact the care that residents receive at any of HHC’s nursing homes.
HHC is working closely with the U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI to assist and cooperate. Because it is an ongoing investigation it would be inappropriate for us to comment further. Any additional questions should be referred to the US Attorney’s office.
