The 'Fashion Police' host died on September 4, 2014 at the age of 81. The city's medical examiner found she died of brain damage due to lack of oxygen when she stopped breathing during an endoscopy days earlier.

The clinic had presented a plan to correct problems uncovered during an investigation after her death. However, the CMS said that Yorkville remained deficient in five areas, including surgical services, quality assessment, performance improvement, governing body and management; and environment.
