Facility Where Injured Patient Gave Birth To Close

Hacienda's statement did not address whether the patients would be moved to other facilities they operate or to ones owned by other companies.

The 37 patients still being cared for at Hacienda HealthCare will be relocated to other facilities, while its skilled nursing center is set to remain open.

The alleged victim, whom CNN is not naming because prosecutors are pursuing the case as a sexual assault, had been at the long-term-care facility since 1992.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey said he was concerned by the decision, considering he had just ordered closer oversight of the company; it's unclear if shutting down will allow those running Hacienda to evade possible prosecution for ignoring "numerous complaints of sexual harassment" and even for "financial fraud".

"After a great deal of careful consideration", the company "has come to understand that it is simply not sustainable to continue to operate our Intermediate Care Facility for the Intellectually Disabled", Hacienda said in a statement, The New York Times reported.

"Immediately following the February 1 vote, we notified the State of Arizona of the Board's decision".

The woman ultimately gave birth to a baby boy, who police say is doing well and is being cared for by her family members.

After obtaining DNA samples from male staff, the Phoenix Police Department announced on January 23 that it had arrested Nathan Sutherland, a male nurse that helped care for the incapacitated woman. He has since given up his nursing license. The care provider will have to work with an outside health care consultant until the state finds it is in compliance.

The Arizona Department of Economic Security, which ordered Hacienda to hire a third-party management team to oversee daily operations, responded to the announced closure, saying it did not agree with the decision. Sutherland was a licensed practical nurse who surrendered his license after his arrest, and he has pleaded not guilty in court.

"They are the ones who should come first, without question", she added. "State agencies are exhausting all efforts to bring this to a conclusion that is beneficial to the patients, some of whom have been at this facility almost their entire lives", the department said. "This approach simply does not meet that test". Ducey has also asked State Attorney General Mark Brnovich to investigate Hacienda for potential violations of the Adult Protective Services Act or civil rights laws.

"We find this announcement very concerning".

"For some patients at the facility, this is the only home they know or remember", Ducey's spokesman Patrick Ptak told The Arizona Republic.

'Forcing this medically fragile community to move, should be a last resort.

Hacienda officials said in a statement that the safety and health of patients have always been the "paramount priority".
