A statement released by AHN ends by saying: “We place the highest priority on safeguarding the privacy and dignity of our employees, patients and visitors, and are appalled that such a reprehensible act was committed on our campus.”
A spokeswoman for AHN told KDKA’s Amy Wadas that the person responsible is an employee.
Someone uncovered the hidden camera inside the employee bathroom, but the spokeswoman could not tell KDKA if patients had access to that bathroom.
Pittsburgh Police say Highmark Police are leading the investigation with help from the Pittsburgh Police.
