UPDATE:  Ebola Patient Lands In Omaha

Doctors at the Nebraska Medical Center say they're ready to treat a missionary who was infected with Ebola while serving in Liberia.

Doctor Rick Sacra has landed in Omaha, and is being taken to the Nebraska Medical Center.

A special isolation unit at the Nebraska Medical Center is one of four nationwide, and it is the largest with 10 beds.

Doctor Phil Smith, who oversees the unit, says the unit was designed for exactly this kind of event.

University of Nebraska Medical Center Chancellor Jeffrey Gold says doctors have been preparing to treat a patient like this for some time.

Gold says he's confident all of the patients, doctors, staff and students at the facility will be protected during this treatment.
