NASHVILLE (AP) — Nashville-based HCA has donated $1 million to the CDC Foundation to help support the international response to the Ebola epidemic.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Tom Frieden said in a news release that HCA's donation will help the agency scale and speed up its response to the epidemic in West Africa.

According to the release, since early July more than 700 CDC workers have responded to the crisis. Currently more than 100 staff are deployed in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.

The CDC Foundation is working with donors like HCA to provide those workers with supplies. Needed items include personal protective equipment, infection control tools, ready-to-eat meals, generators and vehicles.
