One physician resigned while another suspended following an incapacitated woman gave birth at Hacienda HealthCare

A recent report says that the two physicians looking after a vegetative patient who recently gave birth as a result of a sexual assault at a medical facility in Phoenix are no longer a part of the institution. One physician has been suspended from Hacienda HealthCare while the other has resigned from the facility, say reports.

On Dec 29, the woman who was in the vegetative state for almost a decade at Hacienda HealthCare gave birth to a baby boy.

“Once again, we offer an apology and send our deepest sympathy to the client and her family,” Hacienda HealthCare said in a statement. “Hacienda intends to do everything possible to restore its credibility in the eyes of our patients, families, the community and our agency partners at every level.”

A Report from a local media says that no one from the healthcare staff knew about the woman being pregnant and why was she moaning. The staff at the facility called 911 when she began giving birth.

Authorities came into the facility to investigate the sexual assault and collected samples of DNA from male employees who worked there. No sooner the incident grabbed attention, Hacienda’s CEO resigned from the medical facility.

There have been reports that Arizona does not license hacienda HealthCare. While interacting with the news channels, the former Director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, Will Humble, shared that the medical facility is “specifically exempt by statute.”

Founded near about five decades ago, Hacienda HealthCare is a leading provider of specialized health care services in Arizona. The facility provides services to medically fragile and chronically ill infants, children, teens, and young adults as well as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The facility is also called as Hacienda de Los Angeles, or “the dwelling of the angels.”
