Ohio law requires that all ambulatory surgical facilities, like abortion centers, have a transfer agreement with a local hospital. If an ambulatory surgical facility does not have a hospital transfer agreement, the Ohio Department of Health will shut down that facility.
No local hospital will grant a transfer agreement to owner/abortionist Martin Haskell or to Roslyn Kade, who does most of the abortions in Kettering. And it’s not just here. They can’t get a transfer agreement from any hospital in Cincinnati, where they have done abortions.
In fact, the Ohio Department of Health has closed down Haskell's surgical abortion center in Sharonville for not having a transfer agreement with a local hospital.
Without a hospital transfer agreement the abortion center would be shut down by the Ohio Department of Health. In fact, in the past the ODH has issued shut-down orders when the Kettering abortion center had not provided proof of transfer agreement.
In November of 2013 doctors in the Wright State Physicians group agreed to provide emergency back up services at Miami Valley Hospital for the Kettering abortion center and on the basis of that contract the abortionist requested a variance from the requirement for a hospital transfer agreement.
In September of 2015, Haskell joined with Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio in filing a lawsuit against Ohio Department Director, Richard Hodges. The lawsuit maintains that Ohio's regulations related to these abortion facilities are unconstitutional because they threaten the availability of abortion in Southwest Ohio.
As CEO of Wright State Physicians, Alan Marco is the primary signer of the contract with abortionist Martin Haskell that allows him to keep his late-term abortion business open in Dayton.
Dr. Barhan supported late-term abortionist Martin Haskell before the current contract with the entire Wright State Physicians group through an individual consulting contract with Haskell's abortion clinic in Dayton.
Duke, who is also Medical Director for the Miami Valley Hospital Center for Women’s Health, has also supported Haskell for several years through an individual consulting contract to keep his abortion clinic in Dayton open.
Dr. Yaklic is the Medical Director of Wright State Physicians Obstetrics & Gynecology and personally signed the contract with Haskell's abortion clinic.
Dr. Lindheim is also Director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Fertility at Wright State University.
