Abstract

The 2014-2016 West Africa Ebola outbreak led US hospitals to prepare to treat Ebola patients, with significant attributable costs. A nationwide preparedness transition to a tiered approach allowed regional allocation of preparedness resources for Ebola frontline, assessment, and treatment hospitals. Preparedness costs for assessment centers were significant and largely uncompensated.
