(USA TODAY) -- The Yorkville Endoscopy Center, where Joan Rivers was undergoing a procedure before her current hospitalization, is now under investigation, multiple outlets are reporting.

The New York State Health Department is opening a full investigation, and inspectors have been to the clinic.

Spokesman James O’Hare said Thursday that the department is looking into “the whole matter,” according to the AP.

Rivers, 81, went into cardiac arrest and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan on Aug. 28. She’s been unconscious but is out of intensive care.
