NEW YORK, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Health Management Associates Inc.

("Community Health") (NYSE: CYH).

Click here to learn more about the investigation http://zlk.9nl.com/healthmanagement-hma/, or call: 877-363-5972. There is no cost or obligation to you.

Under the terms of the transaction, Health Management shareholders will receive $10.50 in cash and 0.06942 shares of Community Health for each share of Health Management stock they own, representing an approximate value of $13.78 per share. The investigation concerns whether the Health Management Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into the transaction, and whether Community Health is underpaying for Health Management, thus unlawfully harming Health Management shareholders. In particular, at least one analyst set a price target for Health Management stock at $20.00 per share, and shares of Health Management closed above the consideration price the day before the announced merger.
