Mercy Continues Ebola Preparedness Planning and Assessments

Posted on: October 16, 2014
The Ohio Department of Health has activated a 24-hour-a-day call center to answer Ohioans’ questions about Ebola and the recent events in Ohio in an effort to ensure Ohioans get accurate, timely information.
The number for Ohioans to call is 1-866-800-1404.

Mercy Medical Center takes the current outbreak of Ebola very seriously. Like hospitals across the country, we are taking proactive measures to protect everyone in all of our facilities from this disease and other communicable diseases, including continued education for all staff, and other planning, assessment and drill activities. 

According to Tom Cecconi, Mercy president and CEO, Mercy's Ebola Preparedness Team has met and will continue to meet throughout the duration of this epidemic.

He says, "Our primary concern is the safety of our patients, visitors, staff and community. Health care workers in our facilities are using nationally recommended guidelines for protection. We continue to monitor the situation and are working closely with our infectious disease physicians, other Stark County hospitals, state and local organizations for public health and emergency planning, and other community partners to keep abreast of current conditions in Ohio and across the nation."

Mercy will continue to follow all CDC recommendations. Information is posted for patients, families, visitors and community members at all Mercy facilities.
