WMBC-TV News: HackensackUMC Ebola Preparations

October 23, 2014 10:55 AM

Acting to ensure a unified, effective response to the Ebola virus, Governor Chris Christie activated an Ebola preparedness plan to direct all activities of key state departments, hospitals and the medical community and homeland security apparatus to protect the public and create a strong line of defense against Ebola in New Jersey.

To that end, Governor Christie designated three New Jersey trauma centers to receive any Ebola-suspected cases: Hackensack University Medical Center, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick and University Hospital in Newark. The state Health Department has also purchased nearly $1 million worth of additional personal protection equipment for health care employees.
