FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Executives at the hospital where a doctor infected by Ebola once worked say they’re “delighted and relieved” by his return to the United States.

In a statement Saturday, officials at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth said they remain deeply concerned for Dr. Kent Brantly, who was treating Ebola patients in Liberia when he contracted the deadly disease.

Brantly arrived Saturday morning in Atlanta, where he will receive care at Emory University Hospital.

Brantly was flown from Liberia in a private jet outfitted with a special, portable tent designed to transport patients with highly infectious diseases.

Before going to Liberia to work for the group Samaritan’s Purse, Brantly completed a four-year residency at JPS Hospital.
