For the second time this summer, the state says it has shut down a Gentilly medical clinic that provides abortions. The Department of Health and Hospitals on Tuesday issued a cease and desist order to Gentilly Medical Clinic at 3030 Gentilly Blvd. The order flows from an inspection in May that found that "the facility failed to provide nursing services to meet the needs of its patients and adequately monitor women in recovery following a procedure."
DHH spokeswoman Lisa Faust said the clinic later reopened under a temporary court order, but it didn't file a timely appeal to DHH Secretary Bruce Greenstein's underlying license revocation.....
Greenstein's order completes the state's administrative closure of the clinic, Faust said.
A court appeal still is possible.
