Ebola Preparedness at Penn Medicine

The likelihood of an outbreak of Ebola in this country remains extremely remote but, like hospitals throughout this country, Penn Medicine continues to prepare for the potential of receiving a suspected or confirmed Ebola patients.

We encourage all staff to continue to check for updates. Also, two phone lines are available to assist clinicians and staff around the clock: 

*Clinicians with patient-related questions should call 215-614-0524. A physician will answer and handle calls about screening, isolation and, if necessary, lead arrangements for patient transport to HUP from another entity.

 *General questions not pertaining to direct patient care can be directed to 215-615-2929.
