Emory Healthcare has launched an external website that will serve as a resource for health care organizations regarding best practices for safe and effective screening, diagnosis and treatment for patients with Ebola virus disease.

A patient who was transported to Emory University Hospital on Sept. 9 with Ebola virus disease was discharged from the hospital on Oct. 19, 2014.
In coordination with the CDC and Georgia Department of Public Health, the patient was determined to be free of virus and to pose no public health threat. The patient has asked to remain anonymous and left the hospital for an undisclosed location. He will make a statement at a later date.
The patient was treated in the Serious Communicable Disease Unit in Emory University Hospital. Two other patients who were treated for Ebola virus disease were discharged from the hospital on Aug. 19 and Aug. 21. A fourth patient, who arrived on Oct. 15, 2014, is still being treated for Ebola virus disease in Emory’s Serious Communicable Disease Unit.
