Information for Our Patients

As updates continue to be released daily about Ebola virus disease, you may wonder what this means for you and your family as patients and visitors. There currently are no patients with Ebola at any Johns Hopkins Medicine facility, however we recognize that you and your family may have questions about our preparations to ensure the safety of all of our patients and visitors.

As a leader in health care, Johns Hopkins Medicine has extensive experience preparing and caring for those with infectious diseases. In our commitment to safety, we are following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines to detect potential cases of Ebola; protect patients, visitors and staff members; and respond appropriately.

Be assured that our top priority is to provide a healing environment focused on patient safety and quality of care.
