The NY State Health Department is investigating complaints from new parents who claim they were mistreated by the staff at Lenox Hill Hospital while Beyonce was giving birth in the VIP room.

TMZ broke the story ... several parents are considering filing a lawsuit against LHH -- claiming they were neglected by staff and prevented from visiting their newborns ... due to the drama surrounding the superstar.

Now, a rep for the Health Dept. tells the NY Daily News, "Whenever we receive a complaint, we look into it. It’s not necessarily an investigation. It could be a review. Most likely in this case, it would be an investigation.”

It's unclear how many parents complained -- but as we previously reported, a whole bunch of people were griping about the situation during a breastfeeding class a few days ago.

5:49 PM PST -- The NY Health Dept. has announced it has reviewed and DISMISSED the complaints filed against the hospital.

However, a spokesperson for Lenox says the hospital will conduct its own internal investigation into allegations about the mistreatment of maternity patients.

They did the massive cover up because she didn't deliver anything. Her surrogate did. I hope this comes out. What arrogance to deny other parents the right to see their children because of this woman's vanity.

All the complainers want is 15 minutes of fame the nicu is usually on a totally different floor than the delivery rooms are. at least it doesn't involve CPS like the nuisance case against Mariah Carey last year which by the way she never drank the beer she was recomended for milk boosting.

Good!!! Every child is just as important as the other not just because it's parents have money. If that hospital shut down a whole wing of a floor to pamper Beyonce' that's totally unprofessional and discriminative. Class action lurking around the corner. Sick of these high paid celebrities causing such mayhem due to their special requests that become an inconvenience to everyone else around them. If they have all the money in the world, build their own hospital so they can all have it their way. I'm glad these newborn parents are speaking on behalf of their children.

When you're rich, you think you're more special than everyone else on the planet and the world revolves around you. News flash for B and JZ, it doesn't. The hospital shouldn't be sued. They should be sued for their arrogance. And ignorance!

Why are Beyonce & Jay Z being blamed for the hospital's inability to handle the situation? They have as much right as any other parents to a bed in that hospital...If other parents really were mistreated or prevented from seeing their children, that's the hospital's mistake and the hospital should be blamed, sued, whatever.

Their security guards but tape over the hospital security cameras. This vermin is in big trouble.

Even though it is ultimately the Hospital's fault (since they could boot Beyonce's security if they wanted), it will be a real litmus test for Beyonce and JayZ. Are they going to just claim they didn't know anything about it or will they give a sincere apology and do something to genuinely try to make it up to the parents affected by this.
