Cygnet Health Care is one of the three controlling providers of mental health services in England.
In 2014 Cygnet was bought by USA’s Universal Health Services (UHS) for £205 million..
Cygnet Health Care then increased UHS’s UK mental health footprint by a £95 million acquisition of Alpha Hospitals .
In September 2012, UHS, and its subsidiaries, Keystone Education and Youth Services LLC and Keystone Marion LLC,Keystone Marion Youth Center, agreed to pay over $6.9 million, to settle allegations that they had submitted false and fraudulent claims to Medicaid.
Between October 2004 and March 2010, these subsidiaries, had provided substandard psychiatric counselling and treatment to adolescents in breach of Medicaid requirements.
And, the United States alleged, that UHS had falsely represented Keystone Marion Youth Centre, as a residential treatment facility, providing inpatient psychiatric services to Medicaid enrolled children, when in fact, it was a juvenile detention facility.
