Ohio re­vokes li­cense of 1 of state’s last few abor­tion clin­ics

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

COLUM­BUS | Ohio has re­voked the

op­er­at­ing li­cense of one of the state’s few re­main­ing abor­tion clin­ics on the grounds that it failed to ob­tain a re­quired trans­fer agree­ment with a nearby hos­pi­tal for emer­gen­cies.

Women’s Med Center of Day­ton has 15 days to ap­peal the or­der, which was signed Wed­nes­day by Rick Hodges, direc­tor of the Depart­ment of Health. The clinic said it will do so.

Mr. Hodges said the li­cense is be­ing re­voked be­cause the facility failed to name an ad­e­quate num­ber of physi­cians to pro­vide the backup care nec­es­sary to qual­ify for an ex­cep­tion to the hos­pi­tal rule.
