Two Northern California Kaiser Permanente hospitals have been designated as Ebola treatment centers by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced Tuesday that Kaiser’s Oakland and South Sacramento medical centers are to be part of the nation’s Ebola preparedness response plan, Kaiser officials said. The designations follow recent visits to the facilities by state and federal health officials.

“This acknowledgment reflects the exceptional infectious disease experts, hospital-based physicians and nursing leadership we have across Kaiser Permanente,” Gregory Adams, group president and regional president of Kaiser Foundation Hospitals in Northern California, said in a statement.
