Is Church Street Health Management the new World Wide Association of Specialty Programs and Schools?


Is Church Street Health Management-Small Smiles Dental- the current World Wide Association of Specialty Programs and Schools (WWASPS)?  What about NCDR.LLC-Kool Smiles Dental?

WWASPS billed itself as an “umbrella organization” of independent institutions for education and treatment of troubled teenagers.  So does CSHM.  CSHM insists it only manages independent dental clinics.

WWASPS mistreats minor for federal dollars.  So does CSHM.  In fact CSHM’s top management, who are 4 of it’s board members, operated the same kind of facilities WWASPS does, under the name Keys Group Holding,LLC.  Isn’t that odd. 

WWASPS sued a mom who spoke out against their cruelty to children.  So did CSHM.  - Me.

WWASPS sued for mistreating children.  So is CSHM.

WWASPS expose’ was featured by PBS.

Michael Lindley still referred to being employed with Keys Group in 2007 and 2008 & US v Keystone Education and Youth Services

US v Keystone et al accused the M. Lindley and Al Smith group of characters of restraining children, and more Medicaid Fraud.  Appears to be a lifestyle for these folks.
US v Keystone Education and Youth Services; Keystone Marion, LLC; Universal Health Services,
Currently a Subsidiary of Universal Health Services (UHS), UHS was not named as a defendant in all the allegations of the suit, because; “UHS indirectly acquired the other two defendants in or around October 2005; accordingly, UHS is not included in “Defendant” for allegations to the extent that they are related to the events occurring prior to that time.” (page 3, paragraph 10)
UHS acquired the group of Keys companies in October 2005, from Michael Lindley (“Lindley”), Marty Weber, Ameris Healthcare Investments, LLC, Rainer Twiford, Al Smith (“Smith”), Mike White, Rodney Cawood (“Cawood”), Buddy Turner, Jeff Cross, Gail Debiec, Brad Gardner, Brad Williams, Don Wert, Rob Minor, Mike McCulla, Jim Shaheen, Rod Gaeta.  See purchase agreement here.
If the jokers actually “sold” the company,  I can’t imagine why Michael Lindley would contribute to Alexander for Sentate in 2008, twice saying his occupation was Keys Group Holdings.  One contribution was April 19, 2007 for $2300 and again February 27, 2008 for another $2300.  My guess it was really “recapitalization of income” instead of a sale.
Just as in the Small Smiles Dental Centers scam, Keystone’s facilities.. “With only a few exceptions, Defendant restricted admission to the Youth Center to patients who would qualify for reimbursement of the medical costs under the Medicaid program”  (page 3, paragraph 13)

Nashville Scene “Handle With Care” expose’ by Elizabeth Ulrich- November 8, 2007 (the same week the story of the Small Smiles Dental Centers operated by Michael Lindley, Al Smith and others was announced.  That must have been a bad week for them.
Bad Medicine –December 13, 2007- A Nashville youth facility is a nightmare for kids, staffers say, but the state’s licensing body sees no cause for concern, by Elizabeth Ulrich.
Excerpt: ”Checo Perryman, a former counselor at the facility who now runs his own business that teaches an alternative method to Handle With Care, says it was so common for Hermitage boys to smack their chins on the floor during restraints that the facility’s staff named the bloody scabs on the boys’ busted chins. They called it the “Hermitage Hall tattoo.
“What happened behind those walls was very scary and very sad,” he says. But not all restraints end in injury. For some residents, restraint leads to a drug-induced haze that eventually lulls them to sleep—or, as some in the mental health world refer to it, chemical restraint, quite simply because the drugs can be used to restrict residents deemed out of control.
Among incident reports in the DMHDD files, there is tale after tale of restraints that end in some sort of injection. Some of the medications are listed by name—Abilify or Zyprexa, drugs that are used to treat schizophrenia and severe mood disorders. In most of the records, staffers refer to injections with a simple, generic term: PRN, short for a Latin phrase meaning to give drugs as needed.
Davis says that, for Hermitage Hall residents, those unidentified PRN shots usually mean a syringe full of Thorazine—one of the most powerful antipsychotic drugs, which critics liken to a chemical straitjacket.
Even though Hermitage Hall doesn’t always include the name of the drugs administered under the PRN umbrella, Robinson-Coffee says the injections aren’t cause for concern. She says her department could check any of the estimated 100 patient records at Hermitage where “all that stuff is documented.”

Guess who operates Hermitage Hall.

Devore v. Keystone Education and Youth Services, LLC $9.5 Million settlement–January 2011

From UHS Annual Report
Devore, et. al. v. Keystone Education and Youth Services, LLC:
Alicante School (Keystone School Carmichael)  in California was acquired by a subsidiary of ours in October, 2005. Prior to our acquisition, two former employees of the facility filed a false claim act qui tam action and a gender discrimination/whistleblower claim in Sacramento County Superior Court. The plaintiffs allege that the Alicante School improperly billed subdivisions of the state of California based upon services provided at the school and that the plaintiffs were discriminated against based upon their gender and as a result of their objection to these practices. In June, 2008, we entered into an agreement with the former owners of the facility whereby they agreed to defend the case, indemnify us and hold us harmless for any damages that may result from this case. The former owners of the facility had been funding the legal defense of this case since that time. Recently, the court approved the agreed upon $9.5 million settlement of this matter which we paid to the plaintiffs in January, 2011. Since we have made a demand on the former owners of the facility for repayment, and intend to pursue collection of the $9.5 million pursuant to the June, 2008 indemnification agreement (although we can provide no assurance that we will collect the entire $9.5 million), the settlement amount and related receivable is reflected in other current assets and other accrued liabilities on our Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2010.
