Monrovia Medical Unit
The United States Government opened the Monrovia Medical Unit to care for healthcare workers infected with Ebola on November 25, 2014. The 25-bed field hospital was built by the Department of Defense, and was staffed by U.S. Public Health Service clinicians. It was one component of a broader effort to protect international and Liberian healthcare workers who courageously volunteered to treat Ebola patients in Monrovia and Liberia.
