NEW JERSEY — Two Atrium Health & Senior Living facilities were visited by FBI agents in late April.
Spring Hills Senior Communities confirmed that several federal agencies were at Atrium Post Acute Care of Woodbury and the Atrium headquarters in Little Falls, NJ. Spring Hills, which is in Edison, NJ, is planning to buy Atrium’s New Jersey facilities in Wayne, Princeton, Matawan, Livingston, Hamilton and Woodbury.
“These investigations relate entirely to actions or inactions of prior Atrium management. These investigations have no adverse impact on the delivery of care to the residents,” Christina O’Leary, a spokeswoman for Spring Hills, told NJ Advance Media.
Atrium has struggled financially. It placed 33 of its facilities into receivership last year. Additionally, U.S. Foods Inc., which provided food for Atrium facilities, sued various corporations run by Atrium Co-CEO Kevin P. Breslin for over $2.2 million in alleged unpaid bills last fall, NJ Advance Media reported. U.S. Foods Inc. said it had to stop all food deliveries to the facilities, according to court records.
