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.

Good~That will bring the message that in America is not that easy to walk all over people's rights. The hospital is at fault, too. The person who did this kind of business at the hospital should be fired.

Appropriate that this child was born in some sort of VIP room; I can't think of any celeb child more likely to end up dancing a pole.

I don't know.... maybe the hospital did the right thing with allowing all of the security because I'm sure they were worried about how hideous the baby would be with Jay Z as the father.

We will never know the truth. Their PR ppl are losing lots of sleep but in the end they will regain most of their "fans" and will keep making millions. It's really sad. Nothing as sad as this little girls journey. Saveveronica.org, read it!

This is soooo stupid.. for one she had her own suite in the hospital . She did not pay the hospital to have her own wing. That's just plain selfish for everyone to say that. And the mothers that also gave birth are just overreacting abouthe whole situation. Anyways you cant always believe what the news say or the publicity.

Is anyone else wondering why Bey & J are not commenting? You would think that if this stuff was false, they would at least be commenting that the stories aren't true. The silence from the golden couple is deafening so it must be true.
