According to media reports, a third case of Legionnaires’ disease has been diagnosed at Hamilton Hills Personal Care Home in Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania, bringing the total amount of cases in Turtle Creek to eleven.  The other eight cases were diagnosed at the nearby LGAR Health and Rehabilitation Center.  Both facilities, which are retirement homes, have switched to bottled water, and LGAR has installed a copper-silver ionization system to control legionella growth in its water system.  Hamilton Hills is considering the installation of such a system.
