The clinic's chief executive Bill Timmons has now resigned, with his departure unanimously approved by Hacienda HealthCare's board of directors, a company spokesman said.
Hacienda almost lost its Medicare funding in December 2013 after Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) found at least one staff member was abusive to multiple patients while several staff members were deficient in reporting patient allegations of abuse by staff.
Gov. Doug Ducey's office has called the situation "deeply troubling".
Phoenix police say the matter is under investigation and decline further comment.
Calling her case an "absolutely horrifying situation", Hacienda HealthCare board member Gary Orman said in a statement that the "unprecedented case. has devastated everyone involved, from the victim and her family to Hacienda staff at every level of our organization".
Founded as Hacienda de Los Angeles in 1967, Hacienda HealthCare describes itself on its website as "the leading provider of specialized medical care and social services for Arizona's infants, children and young adults who are medically fragile or chronically ill, including those with developmental disabilities".
The woman had been raped multiple times while being cared for at the Arizona centre, reports AzFamily.com.
In the wake of the reports, the Arizona Department of Health Services said new safety measures have been implemented. For example, an investigation in 2013 found that a staff member had made "inappropriate, sexual statements" about four clients.
The family obviously is outraged, traumatized and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda Healthcare. As a company, we welcome this development in the ongoing police investigation.
"There's a lot of information we do not have, but things like this don't happen without someone either knowing about it or should have known about it", Solomon said.
Karina Cesena told a Phoenix news outlet, "I do not [know if my daughter was victimised], but I do ask her, and she can answer yes or no". The incident is being investigated as a sexual assault. "We will continue to work to ensure the safety of all our members". "I haven't been able to sleep good at night because of what occurred here", Angela Gomez, a Hacienda patient's mother, said.
