State of Arizona wants care unit where patient was raped, gave birth to stay open
PHOENIX — The embattled operators of an Arizona long-term care facility agreed Friday to be regulated by the state, effectively nixing a plan to close down the unit where an incapacitated woman gave birth after being raped. The state received written confirmation that Hacienda HealthCare would enter into a voluntary regulation agreement, said Patrick Ptak, spokesman for Gov. Doug Ducey.
