EXCLUSIVE: HEALTH authorities have launched investigations after a seriously ill woman was rushed to Box Hill Hospital last week following complications during surgery at a Melbourne clinic that specialises in late term abortions.
The woman remains in hospital in intensive care following complications during a late term abortion at the Marie Stopes Maroondah clinic, formerly known as the Croydon Day Centre.
The Herald Sun understands the Medical Board of Australia held a special hearing yesterday to quiz medical staff involved in the procedure.
It is believed that one of the doctors involved has previously been criticised by the MBA.
Marie Stopes International Australia CEO Maria Deveson Crabbe said the company had launched its own investigation.
In May, another doctor from this clinic was charged with giving hepatitis C to 49 women. He was released on bail.by
