Two plastic surgery clinics closed
The Ministry of Public Health has announced the temporary shutdown of two plastic surgery clinics in Santo Domingo. A Puerto Rican resident in New York, 28-year old Beverly Ann Brigoni, is reported to have died after a liposuction procedure at one of the clinics on 20 February. The clinics that were closed are the Centro Medico Vista del Jardin and the Doctores Lima Mejia clinic. The authorities said they found bacteria suspected to have caused the infection that led to the victim’s death at the Doctores Lima-Mejia clinic.
The Lima-Mejia clinic operated at Calle Bonaire 7 in Ensanche Ozama, in Eastern Santo Domingo and Centro Medico Vista del Jardin was at Av. Republica de Colombia in Los Rios, National District.
The closures followed inspections carried out by specialists from the General Directorate of Preparation and Accreditation, and technicians from the Dr. Defillo National Laboratory.
