Former President George W. Bush visited Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas Friday, the hospital which cared for Ebola patients in Texas.
"How's everybody doing?" Bush asked as he walked into the hospital and spoke to health care workers.
“The last five weeks have been a trying time for the city and residents of Dallas and especially the people of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas," the former president added.
"I appreciate the way the hospital and its professionals are sharing lessons learned in a way that helps the broader United States health care community respond to this terrible virus," he continued. "As someone who has gone to Presbyterian hospital for care myself, I know it is a dedicated, professional and caring place, and I’m confident it is doing what is necessary to reaffirm the community’s trust.”
The hospital released multiple photos showing Bush's visit with health workers. In the images, the former president was seen talking to hospital staff and meeting with the intensive care unit.
