News broke last week that 8 cases of Legionnaires’ disease had been confirmed at the LGAR Health and Rehabilitation Center in Turtle Creek, just outside of Pittsburgh.  Now, according to news reports, officials from the Allegheny County Health Department are investigating two more cases of Legionnaires’ disease at the nearby Hamilton Hills Personal Care Home.  So far, three people have been hospitalized.  The health department, according to its director, is looking into the domestic water supply of the facilities as a potential source of the outbreak.  Disinfection of the water system at LGAR Health and Rehab is currently underway.
