An Ohio hospital where about 2,000 frozen eggs and embryos may have been damaged by a storage tank malfunction has apologized to patients and said it will do "everything possible to address the situation".

'We will work with our member clinics to help them take any steps needed to ensure such an event never happens again'.

'But we do know that the temperature that was measured at a portion of the tank was higher than our acceptable limits'.

UH said it does not know if mechanical or human error caused the freezer malfunction, and the incident remains under investigation.

The site where the egg- and embryo-holding tanks are stored features an alarm system, and the alarm was said to be going off when staff arrived Sunday morning.

The center will be open Monday through Friday 7 a.m.to 8 p.m. and on Saturday 8 a.m to 1 p.m. Per a University Hospitals statement cited by News 5 Cleveland, the facility has "initiated contact with all of our patients", and a call center has been set up so patients can set up meetings with doctors.

The cost of fixing this disaster.
