(Undated) -- A Cumberland County hospital is expected to be the focus of an investigative piece on "60 Minutes" Sunday evening.
Carlisle Regional Medical Center could be featured in a segment on health management on the CBS program.
Alan Levine is a senior vice president at Health Management Associates, the hospital's parent company. On a conference call with investors, he says he was interviewed by a 60 minutes producer in October. "All told, I was asked extensive questions about whether Health Management has excessive admissions from our emergency departments. We do not. Further, we provided '60 Minutes' with hard data from the government to support it."
The hospital has been the subject of several investigations by the state Department of Health, most recently for allegedly failing to report cases of suspected child abuse.
The "60 Minutes" website says tonight's show looks into allegations from doctors that a hospital chain they used to work for pressured them into admitting patients, no matter what their health needs. The program airs Sunday, December 2nd at 7:30.
