October 17, 2014
FREDERICK, Maryland (AP) - The first nurse to be diagnosed with Ebola after treating an infected Liberian man at a Dallas hospital has arrived in Maryland for treatment at a specialized isolation unit.
Nina Pham will be treated at a National Institutes of Health center in Bethesda, Maryland. The NIH facility has one of four isolation units in the nation. NIH says staff specializing in infectious disease and critical care will treat the 26-year-old nurse.
Officials at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas said Wednesday that Pham was in good condition.
She was flown Thursday evening to Frederick Municipal Airport in Frederick, Maryland, in an executive jet.
Pham was among medical staff at Texas Health Presbyterian who provided care to Thomas Eric Duncan, who died of Ebola last week.
