Summit City Nursing Home - Wrongful Death

Steve Wagner

Today the family of Fort Wayne resident Betty Riley filed a wrongful death medical malpractice lawsuit against the Indianapolis-based Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County (“HHC”) and American Senior Communities, LLC. (“ASC”). The lawsuit alleges that HHC and ASC were negligent in causing the death of Betty Riley on December 13, 2011. Betty had been a resident of Summit City Nursing & Rehabilitation (“Summit City”), a long-term nursing care facility located at 2940 North Clinton Street in Fort Wayne. Summit City is one of the many nursing homes around the state owned by HHC and leased to ASC to operate.

This case involves egregious facts including the attempted cover-up of a homicide at the Summit City nursing home. The case also raises the larger issue of whether HHC is putting profits ahead of resident safety at its nursing homes in a push to fund the construction of the new Wishard hospital in Indianapolis.

On March 5, 2013 at 1:00 PM, the Riley family and their attorneys will hold a press conference to discuss the filing of the wrongful death lawsuit with the Indiana Department of Insurance. The press conference will be held at the Boughter Law Office, 127 West Berry Street, Suite 1001, Fort Wayne, Indiana 46802.
