35 U.S. hospitals designated as Ebola treatment facilities

Strengthening domestic preparedness and hospital readiness.

That’s the message from U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell, who says 35 hospitals are now official Ebola treatment facilities.

Tuesday’s announcement follows months of uncertainty about how best to treat people exposed to Ebola. Top brass from many health care facilities conceded that their staff and buildings were not equipped to treat patients exposed to the deadly virus.

A press release from Burwell’s office says hospitals with Ebola treatment centers have been designated by state health officials, who worked with local health authorities and hospital administrators.

“Ebola treatment centers are staffed, equipped and have been assessed to have current capabilities, training and resources to provide the complex treatment necessary to care for a person with Ebola while minimizing risk to health care workers,” says Burwell.

The 35 hospitals that made the designation include:

  • Kaiser Oakland Medical Center; Oakland, California
  • Emory University Hospital; Atlanta
  • Northwestern Memorial Hospital; Chicago
  • Johns Hopkins Hospital; Baltimore
  • Mayo Clinic Hospital – Rochester, Saint Mary’s Campus; Rochester, Minnesota
  • Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital; New Brunswick, New Jersey
  • University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston; Galveston, Texas
  • Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
  • MedStar Washington Hospital Center; Washington, D.C.

Noticeably absent from the list is Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, where patient Thomas Duncan died in October. Duncan was the first person to succumb to Ebola in the U.S. Soon after his death, Duncan’s family reached a legal settlement with the hospital citing the negligent care that had been provided.
