Company officials said financial challenges prompted the decision that will affect more than 3,000 patients. Letters citing unprecedented financial challenges and announcing the decision were sent to patients. "We are saddened to have to take this action but, regrettably, have no choice," the company's president and CEO wrote in a statement.
