Abortion clinic closes after failing inspection

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio (AP) - A northeastern Ohio abortion provider has closed after failing a state health and safety inspection.

The Ohio Department of Health ordered abortion provider Capital Care Network of Cuyahoga Falls to stop operations in an April 16 letter and says it soon will revoke the clinic's license.

The clinic can appeal the order but has shuttered its doors. One of its owners did not immediately return an email seeking comment Wednesday.

The health department says inspectors found numerous violations during a Feb. 21 inspection, including undertrained staff, failure to maintain a safe and sanitary environment and failure to maintain patient documentation.

The health department gave the clinic a chance to request a hearing about a proposal to revoke its license, but says the clinic did not reply.
