St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor in Ypsilanti, MI Sets up Fungal Exposure Clinic

The fungal meningitis outbreak has 62 CDC-confirmed cases in Michigan as of yesterday afternoon (the number is rising every day, though, and will go up later today). Of these, 5 people have died. Most of these patients have been treated at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor in Ypsilanti, MI. The hospital did not receive any of the contaminated steroid injections that caused the outbreak.

As a public service we would like patients who had a steroid injection with potentially contaminated medication to know about this program and the good work that St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor is doing. The hospital is located here:

St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor
5301 McAuley Drive, Ypsilanti, MI 48197

We would also like patients to know that they have legal rights that need to be protected. You can contact our attorneys for a free consultation here. Our firm recently won $4.5 million for a Michigan resident sickened by another contaminated product.  Fred and his team filed one of the first meningitis outbreak lawsuits against New England Compounding Center (NECC), the maker of the steroid medication implicated in this outbreak, and many more lawsuits will be filed in the near future.

St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor has taken the lead in Michigan in treatment of CDC-confirmed meningitis outbreak patients in Michigan, all of which received epidural spinal steroid injections from one of the following four non-St. Joe clinics identified by the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH):

  • Michigan Neurosurgical Institute in Grand Blanc
