New pharmacy plans to close after ‘sad and dangerous’ trend of patients dying at clinic

Arlington, Va.

—  A pharmacy in Virginia plans to shut down as a result of the rise in patient deaths.

The Virginia Pharmacy Commission says it is the second pharmacy in the state to close due to rising deaths at its facilities, and is working with a medical group to find a new location.

The pharmacy is located at 810 Spring Creek Parkway in Arlington.

The commission said it is not sure if the new pharmacy will remain open.

It said it has been a “sad, dangerous and challenging” trend for the pharmacy, which has had more than 20 patients die over the last three months.

A pharmacist with the pharmacy is scheduled to appear in court later on Monday.
