DISASTER PLANNING COALITION

SOUTHWEST FLORIDA HEALTHCARE COALITION

Healthcare Coalitions in Florida – Region 6

Healthcare Coalitions (HCCs) have been defined as “a collaborative network of healthcare organizations and their respective public and private sector response partners that serve as a multi-agency coordinating group to assist with preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation activities related to healthcare organization disaster operations.” —Healthcare Preparedness Capabilities: National Guidance for Healthcare System Preparedness

The development and sustainment of HCCs is a federal initiative and a requirement of the Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) Cooperative Agreement funded by the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR).
