JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

A local cancer treatment center is closed after officials told us they did not receive financing needed to open under a new name.

McLeod Cancer and Blood Center, whose business manager recently pleaded guilty to receiving unapproved drugs, closed Monday.    

Officials said they were denied bank loans to start a new business.    

Former employees are now working to make sure all their patients are relocated to other treatment clinics in the region.    

Officials are encouraging patients, especially those who are receiving chemotherapy treatment, to call or come by the office to pick up medical records and talk about a referral.
