Dr. Jon Perlin Discusses HCA’s Recent $1M Donation for Ebola Response

In this video, HCA’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jon Perlin discusses the recent donation of $1M to the CDC Foundation to help in the fight against ebola and the reasons why the donation was made. The number of individuals infected with the Ebola virus doubles approximately every three weeks with more than 5,800 cases, based on the latest estimates. Tragically, the number of deaths has increased from 1,500 to more than 2,800 in the same time period. These numbers are only expected to climb without immediate action.
