Buffalo's ECMC, Women & Children's
Designated to Treat Ebola Patients

Two hospitals in Buffalo are among 10 in New York State designated to treat Ebola patients.

ECMC and Women and Children’s Hospital have agreed to care for potential Ebola patients, according to Governor Andrew Cuomo.

New York State’s Ebola plan calls for designated hospitals statewide, which are equipped for the isolation, identification, and treatment of Ebola patients, to handle all Ebola cases.

Cuomo’s office said the designation of Ebola treatment centers does not lessen the need for all hospitals to be able to appropriately and rapidly identify, isolate, diagnose and stabilize suspect Ebola patients. Additional hospitals are expected to be designated soon.
