Saint Agnes Hospital is committed to providing a quality healthcare experience for all of our patients. Some patients have expressed concern regarding the recent fungal meningitis outbreak related to steroid injections purchased from the New England Compounding Center (NECC). Saint Agnes Hospital has not purchased any steroids from NECC and there have been no cases of fungal meningitis diagnosed in our hospital.
Patients who have questions or concerns about their treatment plans or fungal meningitis are encouraged to contact their physician.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the patients and families affected by the meningitis outbreak.
