October 29, 2014

MADISON Wisconsin health officials have set up a plan for moving Ebola patients in the state to one of four hospitals.

The state Department of Health Services issued a news release Tuesday saying the agency will work with doctors caring for Ebola patients to move the patients to the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison or Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee.

Children diagnosed with Ebola would go to the American Family Children's Hospital in Madison or the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.

State Health Officer Karen McKeown says all four facilities have plans in place to safely treat Ebola patients and prevent the disease's spread.

No one in Wisconsin has been diagnosed with Ebola.
