(SEYMOUR) - Schneck Medical Center has been designated as an Ebola assessment hospital by the Indiana Department of Health, one of only six such facilities in the state.

Stephanie Furlow, Schneck's director of marketing, says the designation means that Schneck has demonstrated it has the appropriate staff, equipment, and resources to provide up to 96 hours of evaluation and care to persons suspected of having the virus while awaiting results from an Ebola blood test.

Furlow adds that Schneck has also sent eight people to the National Ebola Training and Education Center in Atlanta for Ebola Preparedness Training. She notes that as an officially designated Ebola Assessment Hospital, Schneck may receive Ebola patients from other area hospitals that are not fully prepared for the care of such a patient.
