Carondelet Seeks to Alleviate Local Concern about Meningitis Outbreak. Carondelet Health Network is committed to providing a quality healthcare experience for all of our patients. Some community members have expressed concern regarding the recent fungal meningitis outbreak occurring in other states and related to steroid injections purchased from the New England Compounding Center (NECC).
Carondelet has not purchased any steroids from NECC and there have been no cases of fungal meningitis diagnosed in our hospitals. Anyone with questions or concerns about their treatment plans or fungal meningitis are encouraged to contact their physician.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the patients and families affected by the meningitis outbreak. Members of the media who wish to speak with a medical expert about the recent fungal meningitis outbreak may contact Lisa Contreras, Director of External Communications at 520-349-1845.
