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 tells The News Journal (https://delonline.us/1JXq8A9 ) 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.
