NEW YORK (AP) — New York health officials have reviewed and dismissed complaints patients in a hospital neonatal unit were mistreated while Beyonce was giving birth there to her and Jay-Z’s daughter.
Health department spokesman Jeffrey Gordon says they received two complaints about Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital. He says both were dismissed by Wednesday night.
Beyonce gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, on Saturday.
Media reports said the couple paid $1 million to take over a floor and their security guard blocked parents from the neonatal unit for hours. The hospital denied the reports, saying the couple paid the standard rate for an executive suite without disclosing what that is.
But hospital spokeswoman Barbara Osborn says the hospital’s executive director is conducting an inquiry into the complaints about treatment of neonatal unit patients.
