Special news statement regarding the fungal meningitis outbreak

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration are currently coordinating a multistate investigation of fungal meningitis among patients who received an epidural steroid injection with a potentially contaminated product manufactured by the New England Compounding Center.

McLaren Port Huron has never used epidural steroid medication, methylprednisolone acetate, from the New England Compounding Center that is linked to this outbreak. 

Michigan facilities that have received the supply include:

• MICHIGAN NEUROSURGICAL INSTITUTE, GRAND BLANC, MI
• MICHIGAN PAIN SPECIALISTS, BRIGHTON, MI
• NEUROMUSCULAR & REHABILITATION, TRAVERSE CITY, MI
• SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN SURGICAL HOSPITAL, WARREN, MI

If you have received a steroid injection from one of the four Michigan facilities that has purchased from the New England Compounding Center and are experiencing symptoms, contact your physician or seek medical attention immediately.

This form of meningitis is not contagious.
