FORT MILL, S.C. -- Questions remain after Carolina Birthing Center in Fort Mill closed it's doors, questions that officials are not answering.
The Department of Health and Environmental Control has launched an investigation, and that is all that the agency will confirm to NBC Charlotte.
There is no immediate evidence that any laws or rules were broken. There is no indication whether the closing will be temporary or permanent.
Parents who have utilized the birthing center are defending the center.
"We were surprised by that we just had our little girl delivered by one of the mid wives at the center, we were very happy with her services," said proud father Carlos Montgomery.
First responders confirm to NBC Charlotte that they've responded to the center seven times this year. It was not clear if those calls were related to the ongoing investigation.
On the Facebook page for "Carolina Birthing Center", the following post was listed apologizing to expecting families:
We regret to inform our community that DHEC has issued a temporary suspension to operate our facility.
We are working diligently to appeal the decision so we can re-open as soon as possible. Clients are welcome to call and discuss options for their continued care and access their medical records.
We will share additional information as soon as we are able to. We have loved serving our families for the past four years and look forward to continuing to do so in the near future.
We are grateful for the ongoing love and support from the community.
