We want to assure patients and families that the NCH Healthcare System has never purchased or administered the steroid products produced by NECC (New England Compounding Center), which have been implicated in the reported cases of fungal meningitis.
Strictly as a precaution, the CDC and FDA recalled all products made by the NECC. Accordingly, NCH has removed these medications from use, and is providing required notification to patients. We will continue to monitor this situation with the highest priority and coordinate efforts with various government agencies.
Please refer to the CDC
and Florida Department of Health
for additional information.
