Health Department Launched Investigation In Beyonce Hospital Drama

health-dept-investigaged-lenox-hill-hospital-in-beyonce-baby-birth.jpg

Wow, things are getting hardcore.

The NY State Health Department already took action and launched an investigation into claims that patients were mistreated at the Lenox Hill Hospital while Beyonce's baby was being born.

Several parents were looking into filing a lawsuit against the hospital alleging that the hospital staff neglected them and security refused to let them see their newborns.

A rep for the Health Dept. said:

"Whenever we receive a complaint, we look into it. It’s not necessarily an investigation. It could be a review. Most likely in this case, it would be an investigation."

Turns out, the Health Dept. reviewed and dismissed the complaints, however, a spokeperson for the hospital is taking matters into their own hands and is launching an internal investigation of their own.

Cray cray. We bet Bey never thought it would come down to this.

Mayor Bloomberg Defends Beyonce And NYC Hospital

Well, here's a twist on things.

When New York's Mayor Bloomberg was asked about his thoughts on Lenox Hill Hospital giving Beyonce and her newborn special treatment, he actually defended the hospital's action with an interesting spin.

With the reportedly $1.2-1.3 million that was paid to the hospital for sanctioning off an entire wing for Bey and Co., the mayor implied that the money given to Lenox Hill could actually help future patients.

He said at a press conference:

"Let's step back a little bit here. If [the hospital] got paid a lot of money and it let them provide services to other people who don't have insurance or can't afford it, I'm not so sure it's a bad thing. Full-paying patients are very valuable to hospitals in this day and age.

…it's been an awful long time since I've been in a maternity ward. I don't think I'm the person that can tell you what goes on in this day and age. I don't think you should keep people from seeing their babies, or whatever, but have different services for people are full-paying patients. It's easy to go and criticize, but somebody's got to pay."

In a recent statement, the hospital denied the rumors that they gave A-list treatment to the Carter family, but the fact is, they DID get paid a substantial amount. And hey, if it's helping out moms who need medical care, then who are we to judge?

Tina Fey Didn't Get The Beyonce Treatment At Lenox Hill Hospital

Filed under: Baby BlabberBeyonceTina FeyPregnancy Talk

So, apparently if you DON'T pay $1.2 million to rent out a wing at Lenox Hill Hospital, then you don't get treatment.

Just ask Tina Fey and her 30 Rock co-star Jane Krakowski.

The two ladies sat down with Matt Lauer and revealed that they didn't get the special Beyonce A-list treatment when their children were born at the same hospital.

Beyonce's Hospital Sets The Record Straight

Filed under: Baby BlabberBeyonceHealthBlue Ivy Carter

The hospital where Beyonce gave birth to Blue Ivy is clearing the air on what exactly went down during the singer's stay there.

Lenox Hill Hospital in New York is denying reports that that Beyonce and co. paid over $1 million to rent out the maternity floor and allowed her security to deny other patients' family to visit their children.

The hospital's executive director Frank Danza released a statement on the matter:

"Lenox Hill Hospital and its staff were delighted to welcome the Carter family for the birth of their firstborn on Saturday evening, but we are troubled by the misinformation being circulated in some news media reports. The suggestion that the couple paid $1.3 million to rent an entire maternity floor is simply not true. The family is housed in an executive suite at the hospital and is being billed the standard rate for those accommodations. Our executive suites are available for any patient, including the food service and amenities provided to the Carter family.

The family does have its own security detail on site. However, the hospital has been and continues to be in control of managing all security at the facility. We have made every effort to ensure minimal disruption to other families experiencing the births of their own children over the past three days. No security plan that we or the Carters' security team put in place would have prevented or delayed families from gaining access to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and to date, no families have complained to the hospital about being denied access to the NICU.

Lenox Hill Hospital takes patient privacy and safety very seriously. And while we congratulate the Carter family on the birth of their child, we value the loyalty of ALL of our patients and always strive to ensure a positive experience, knowing that the birth of a child is a wonderful moment producing memories that last a lifetime."

Damage control! Damage control! Damage control!

LOLs JK, we're sure they're being honest and upfront about their actions and not just covering up the fact that they pissed a lot of people off by catering to the Carter family.

That's not what other patients say happened, but you know, whatevs.
