The Ebola epidemic in West Africa reached our shores in 2014 and essential hospitals were on the front line. Listen now to hear from two members – New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation and The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston – about how they prepared to care for an Ebola patient.
