Memorial releases statement on federal investigation

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Memorial University Medical Systems has released a statement after receiving notice that the federal government is investigating its practices. 

Memorial says this all stems from a whistleblower complaint filed by former CEO Philip Schaengold. They say it focuses on Memorial's employment of Eisenhower Medical Associates claiming physicians would refer patients to facilities in which they have a financial interest.  

In the statement, Memorial says it, "believes the procedures and practices referenced in the complaint were in compliance with the law and is cooperating with the government's investigation of these matters." 

It goes on to say, "Memorial remains committed to providing safe, high quality healthcare and serving our community and doing so in compliance with all legal requirements."
