U.K. medical and pharmaceutical firm Brookfield Asset Management was fired from the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday for unpaid medical bills for more than 2,000 patients.
The firm, based in Boston, has a track record of paying doctors and hospitals but has never been audited by regulators.
The firm’s CEO was accused of hiding millions of dollars in illegal profits and other violations in a scheme that involved selling his company to investors.
“We’ve had a long history of working for the United Nations and our customers,” Brookfield CEO Richard Mennon told Reuters.
“We have a history of paying the best doctors and we don’t have a business history like some other companies.”
Mennon said he was informed of the firing by U.
NewYork, a nonprofit that investigates medical malpractice claims.
“In a way, we’ve had this whole ordeal,” Mennons said.
“And so, we’re just going to move forward.”
Mannes, a doctor and orthopedic surgeon, was fired as CEO of Brookfield in February.
The company’s chief financial officer, Scott McGovern, was also removed from the company’s board.
Brookfield said in a statement it was disappointed in the decision and would appeal.
Mennons told Reuters he had no idea that his firm had been investigated by the U,N.G.A., which is a watchdog agency that investigates allegations of malpractice and fraud against U.n. health organizations.
The U.G., which oversees the U to the U’s Security Council, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Mannets firm is a global provider of medical and orthopaedic services, including care for the U and other health systems around the world.
Mancuso’s office declined to comment on the firing.
“The U. New York Office has no comment on this matter,” the office said in an emailed statement.
A U.U. spokesperson said the UG.
G.-supported General Assembly investigation was being handled by a U.a.S., a non-governmental organization that works to uphold and defend the human rights of the U.’s population and the global community.
