Ohio's University Hospitals' CEO Tom Zenty is apologizing over the hospitals' recent failure at its fertility center. In a video posted to the hospital's Facebook page, Zenty says the storage tank's remote alert system, which alerts employees to temperature changes, had been shut off. The fertility center now says 4,000 frozen eggs and embryos were lost. That is twice the number than what was originally reported. Letters have been sent out to the nearly 1,000 affected families. The fertility center is facing several lawsuits for negligence and breach of contract.
Zenty said the center is cooperating with the Ohio Department, the College of American Pathologists and other organizations that are looking into what happened.
