Across the country, more than 31,000 healthcare coalition members work to protect the health and lives of Americans when disaster strikes. Healthcare coalitions (HCCs) are groups of individual healthcare and response organizations – such as hospitals, EMS providers, emergency management organizations, public health agencies, and more – working in a defined geographic location to prepare for and respond to disasters and emergencies.
HCCs collaborate to ensure each member has what it needs to respond to emergencies and planned events, including medical equipment and supplies, real-time information, communication systems, and educated and trained healthcare personnel.
Join the Utah/Wasatch County Healthcare Coalition.
Hospital coordination during a disaster is one of the most important things the health department is tasked with to ensure that the greatest number of people can be treated and that the hospitals remain stocked with all necessary lifesaving materials. For this reason, our coalition along with key health department individuals meet often to share information, address concerns, create emergency plans, and perform required exercises together.
