"As an organization, Hacienda HealthCare stands fully committed to getting to the truth of what, for us, represents an unprecedented matter", David Leibowitz, spokesman for Hacienda HealthCare, said in a statement released to ABC News.

A female patient living at a Hacienda HealthCare facility reportedly gave birth December 29 although the staff was unaware the woman was pregnant.

"Trust has been broken and severed completely", Karina Cesena, whose 22-year-old daughter has been a patient at Hacienda for two years, told CBS News.

Phoenix police say the matter is under investigation and decline further comment.

In its statement Monday, Hacienda Healthcare said it was continuing to cooperate with the police investigation.

In addition to working with police, the state is "re-evaluating the state's contract and regulatory authority as it relates to this facility and have been working closely with state agencies to ensure all necessary safety measures are in place", Patrick Ptak, a governor's office spokesman, said in a statement.

Did Captain Marvel Directors Hint At Tony Stark Appearance?
He said Vice director Adam McKay should be the person to direct the film on Silver Surfer if the project ever materialises. The film is all set to release on April 26 and will mark the end of Marvel's first phase of movies.

"During this time, the agency has required heightened safety measures be implemented at the facility including increased staff presence during patient interactions, increased monitoring of the patient care areas, and increased security measures with respect to visitors at the facility", said a spokesperson for the department.

Hacienda HealthCare was founded five decades ago.

Hacienda describes itself as Arizona's "leading provider of specialised health care services for medically fragile and chronically ill infants, children, teens, and young adults as well as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities".

But there have been reports of patient mistreatment.

In 2013, an investigation found that a staff member made "inappropriate, sexual statements" about four clients. We are proud of our record and our position as an industry leader in caring for the intellectually and developmentally disabled. The worker also watched clients in the facility touch themselves. The outlet attributed its report to a single unnamed source who reportedly had been told about the incident. That staff member was sacked.
