Memorial Medical Center Sends Precautionary Notice to 2,000 Patients

While there are no known instances of Springfield area facilities prescribing a drug linked to a deadly meningitis outbreak, several local medical providers have distributed other drugs that came from the same Massachusetts pharmacy.


Memorial Medical Center is sending letters to about 2,000 patients who have received those other drugs since May 21st of this year.


The hospital says the notices are being sent out of an “abundance of caution,” but says there’s no indication of any health risk from those drugs.


The Food and Drug Administration says injectable drugs from that Masschusetts pharmacy… NECC… were also sent to Springfield Eye Consultants, the Illinois Retina Center, and Prairie Surgery Center in Springfield.
