UMass Memorial Is Prepared: Today and Every Day

With the media’s heighted focus on Ebola, it’s natural to feel anxious. You’re not alone.  However, at UMass Memorial Medical Center, we want you to be assured that our team is prepared and committed to care for patients with the Ebola virus or suspected Ebola virus. To that end, UMass Memorial has many activities underway. Learn more about the initiatives the Medical Center is taking aimed at keeping our staff and our patients safe. Pictured: Medical Center employees administer medical services to a mock Ebola patient during a training session in early December with Centers for Disease Control’s Rapid Ebola Preparedness (REP) team.

Finally, please remember that Ebola is not airborne, but is spread through direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of a person who is sick with Ebola.

If you have flu-like symptoms and recently traveled to West Africa or had close contact with an Ebola-diagnosed person, please call your doctor.
