Today's Baltimore Sun Article

In today's Baltimore Sun, there is an article listing the 89 Maryland facilities out of over 3000 nationwide that has purchased drugs from the New England Compounding Center since this past May.  This is the facility that is linked to the tainted steroid that has sickened over 300 with meningitis, resulting in the death of 23 people.   We have dealt with a number of inquires since the story first broke as to whether or not WMHS received drugs from this facility.  The article lists 89 facilities in Maryland; however,WMHS is not one of them.  WMHS did not purchase nor receive any drugs from this facility.  The Baltimore Sun article lists only one facility in Cumberland and it is not affiliated with WMHS.  A link to the article is attached.
