Santorum sat on Board of Directors of highly-abusive hospital chain.

Still working on a supplemental, fact-filled (and damning) collection of information supplementing my recent radio talk show. Stay Tuned!!!

In the meantime, in light of the Iowa results, new attention being paid to Rick Santorum's longtime membership on the Board of Directors of Universal Health Systems (UHS), the nation's largest operator of inpatient psych facilities, youth residential homes, and juvenile detention facilities - over 200 facilities in total. UHS has a very, very long and extraordinary record of violations of patients' rights at psych facilities - including their facilties here in Massachusetts, and all across the country. Currently, there are several US Dept. of Justice investigations into UHS for rights abuses. UHS employees have given lavishly to Santorum's campaign.
