Mankato Health Facilities Not Part of Meningitis Scare
MANKATO-October 11, 2012-(KMKO)- As concerns grow over the fungal meningitis outbreak nationwide, the Mankato Clinic and the Mankato Surgery Center have confirmed their pharmaceutical supplier does not purchase and has never purchased any products from the New England Compounding Center, the manufacturer at issue. Officials at both organizations want patients to know that any injections provided by them are safe. The Mankato Clinic and the Mankato Surgery Center use pharmaceutical supplies from other vendors and will continue to do so. Also, neither location uses the type of medication in question regardless of manufacturer.
