INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A company that operates dozens of Indiana nursing homes said Wednesday it’s cooperating with a government investigation a day after federal agents raided its headquarters and the home of its CEO.

In a statement, American Senior Communities said it has been contacted by the federal government “in connection with an investigation into certain individuals or practices.”

“ASC is fully cooperating with the government and is conducting its own review to ascertain the relevant facts. ASC is in compliance with all federal, state and local laws and regulations and will continue to conduct its business in accordance with the highest standards of integrity,” the statement said.

Several FBI and IRS agents spent several hours Tuesday searching the headquarters and the Carmel home of company CEO James Burkhart. Burkhart issued a statement through his attorney saying the company would cooperate with the government in what he referred to as a “cost review.”

ASC manages nearly 100 senior care facilities, making it one of Indiana’s largest nursing home management companies. They include 60 nursing homes and assisted-living sites throughout the state that the company manages under a contract with Marion County’s public health agency.
