ASHEVILLE — Femcare, the clinic that is Western North Carolina’s only provider of abortion services, re-opened on Friday, Aug. 23, after the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services lifted its suspension of the facility, a Femcare staffer confirmed Monday.

According to a DHHS memo on the matter, which can be read below, a DHHS inspector surveyed Femcare on Aug. 20 and 21 and found that the clinic had corrected all of its health and safety violations. A surprise inspection in mid-July had turned up 23 violations of state rules and regulations, all of which have now been resolved.
