Fungal Meningitis Outbreak - Update on NECC Products
No Phoenix Children’s patient has received any of the NECC contaminated medication that has been tied to the meningitis outbreak from the New England Compounding Center (NECC) in Framingham, Massachusetts.
Phoenix Children’s Hospital has purchased other products from NECC and as a precautionary measure we proactively removed all these from inventory, replacing them with alternative drugs.
The safety and well-being of our patients is the highest concern for Phoenix Children’s Hospital. We continue to monitor this situation closely and are awaiting future guidance from the FDA and CDC. To date, Phoenix Children's has no patients who are known to be affected by this outbreak.
For more information, we recommend the following sites:
From the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
