IU Health Bloomington officials say a recent outbreak of fungal meningitis does not affect patients there.
Spokeswoman Amanda Roach says the hospital never bought tainted medicine distributed by a Massachusetts pharmacy known as the New England Compounding Center.
“IU Health Bloomington as well as the IU Health Pain Center here in Bloomington does not have any of the recalled products,” she says. “So our patients don’t need to be concerned that they may have received that particular pain medication from an IU health facility.”
State health officials say the number of fungal meningitis cases statewide has climbed to 11.
