U.S. officials have designated 35 hospitals around the country to care for Ebola patients, part of the Obama administration’s effort in the past two months to improve domestic preparedness to cope with the deadly virus that has ravaged West Africa.

The hospitals were chosen by state health officials and hospital executives and assessed by infection-control teams from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to make sure they have adequate staff, equipment, training and resources to provide the extensive treatment necessary to care for an Ebola patient, U.S. officials said Tuesday.
