EAST FALLS (WPVI) -- More patients had to be hospitalized after being sickened at a drug rehab facility in the East Falls section of Philadelphia.

It happened just after 9:00 p.m. at the Gaudenzia Diagnostic and Rehabilitation Center in the 3200 block of Henry Avenue.

Several ambulances were called to the scene and about 12 people were taken to area hospitals.
