Nina Pham, 26, steps off the plane Thursday night at a municipal airport in Frederick, Md. An ambulance was waiting to take her to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Md.

Nina Pham, 26, was flown by executive jet from Dallas to Frederick Municipal Airport in Frederick, Md.

From there, she was being transferred to a specialized isolation unit at the National Institutes of Health center in Bethesda, Md.

Officials there have said staff specializing in infectious diseases will care for her.

When Pham left Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, officials said she was in good condition.

Pham contracted Ebola after providing care for Thomas Eric Duncan, who died of the virus last week.
