Abortion Clinic at Risk of Closure by State for Accreditation

Posted:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- The state has warned a Wilmington abortion clinic that it risks being closed for not having proper accreditation.
    
Director of the Delaware Division of Public Health Dr. Karyl Rattay says that Premier OB/GYN has been "repeatedly informed" by the division to provide proof of accreditation by Sept. 15.
    
Legislation passed in 2013 requires facilities that perform invasive medical procedures, such as surgical abortion, to have independent, secondary accreditation.
    
The measure says facilities have a year to send their accreditation to the Health Department and a place a separate copy near the facility's entrance.
    
In a letter to the state, the clinic says that it didn't start operating until January, and that the state is confusing it with a previous clinic at the same site.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
