(CNN) - The New York clinic where Joan Rivers suffered respiratory and cardiac arrest during a medical procedure is now under investigation.

The state health department tells CNN it has launched a probe into Yorkville Endoscopy Center.

Rivers, who died Thursday, stopped breathing during throat surgery at the Manhattan clinic last week.
