Thirty-five hospitals in the United States have been identified and designated as Ebola treatment centers, and more centers are expected to be named in the coming weeks, according to the CDC.

The hospitals are appropriately staffed and equipped to treat patients with Ebola, and have the capabilities, training and resources to care for these patients and minimize the risk to healthcare workers. The hospitals were designated by state health officials to serve as Ebola treatment facilities, and each facility was assessed by a CDC Rapid Ebola Preparedness team.
