McLeod Cancer and Blood Center will close its doors, and the oncologist at the center of an unapproved medication investigation will “semi-retire,” according to his attorney.

McLeod and its founder, Dr. William Kincaid, came under investigation earlier this year when the Federal Drug Administration discovered a variety of misbranded, or mislabeled, chemotherapy medications.

But even with the closing of Mcleod, the cancer treatment center will reopen under a new name and new director, according to Johnson City lawyer Mark Slagle. He said the Wesley Street location will close permanently and all operations will be located at the main office on North State of Franklin Road.
