(Reuters) - A U.S. healthcare worker who may have been exposed to Ebola in West Africa arrived at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta early on Thursday for testing and observation, the hospital said.

The patient, who has not been identified, was flown from West Africa and will be monitored to see if the infection has been acquired, the hospital said.

U.S. health officials this week designated 35 hospitals nationwide, including Emory, as Ebola treatment centers.
