UHS of Delaware, a subsidiary of Universal Health Services, King of Prussia, Pa., agreed to pay nearly $1.5 million to settle Medicare cost-reporting charges. The subsidiary signed the settlement without admitting wrongdoing. According to the U.S. attorney's office in Philadelphia, 59-bed Turning Point Hospital, Moultrie, Ga., which is managed by UHS of Delaware, included nonreimbursable expenses in Medicare cost reports for 1997 to 1999. Officials at the parent company declined to comment. Universal owns or manages 56 hospitals in 22 states. -- by Mark Taylor
