One N.C. abortion clinic closed, another reopens
One North Carolina abortion clinic is now closed for good and another abortion center has re-opened after both were cited for problems that led to the suspension of services at each location this summer.
The N.C. Department of Health and Human Service confirmed Monday the physician at The Baker Clinic for Women in Durham voluntarily surrendered his license effective last week. The clinic already had closed its doors in early July after inspectors said the clinic failed to perform quality control testing on patients who received certain blood testing.
The Asheville surgery center FEMCARE opened its doors again late last week after regulators say certain deficiencies are no longer present. HHS said last month inspectors discovered problems there that were a threat to the health and safety of patients.
