BOISE, Idaho (AP) — As federal officials expand their investigation of a meningitis outbreak tied to injectable steroids made by a Massachusetts company, Idaho health officials are contacting nine clinics that may have recently received other injectable drugs from the company. Two of those clinics are in the Magic Valley. St. Luke’s Magic Valley and the Ambulatory Surgery Center of Burley where listed on the Departments Website. The other clinics are in Idaho Falls and Pocatello, as well as Boise and Coeur d’Alene. The Idaho Division of Public Health is urging the clinics to contact their patients who may have received injectable drugs manufactured by the New England Compounding Center since May to make sure they do not have symptoms of infection. NECC has recalled epidural steroids tied to the meningitis outbreak that has sickened more than 200 people and killed 15. Health officials say an Idaho man diagnosed with fungal meningitis is responding well to treatment.

Here is the full list:

  • Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center (Boise)
  • St. Luke’s Regional Medical Center (Boise)
  • Idaho Eye Care Center (Idaho Falls)
  • Walker Spine & Sports Specialists (Idaho Falls)
  • Idaho Eye Care Center (Pocatello)
  • St. Luke’s Magic Valley Regional Medical Center (Twin Falls)
  • Ambulatory Surgery Center of Burley (Burley)
  • North Idaho Pain Center (Couer d’Alene)
  • Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine (Coeur d’Alene)
