Medical Health Preparedness Coalition


Who We Are

The Contra Costa County Medical Health Preparedness Coalition is a collaborative network of healthcare organizations and individuals that provide or support healthcare services in the county. The Coalition meets regularly to share information, coordinate planning and response activities, and build resiliency. Membership in the Forum includes (but is not limited to): hospitals, public and private medical or health services, emergency preparedness agencies, emergency services, and governmental bodies with an interest in the provision of healthcare.

 

What We Do

During medical surge, the healthcare system expands with more personnel, equipment, and beds to be able to care for these patients. Responding to and managing such surges requires the close coordination of many emergency responders, healthcare entities, government agencies, and community organizations.

This concept of medical surge forms the cornerstone of medical and health disaster preparedness efforts. We work with our healthcare partners to coordinate healthcare preparedness, response and recovery in Contra Costa County during disasters and other states of emergency. We also work with our neighboring counties to make sure that we respond as one entity during extreme conditions.
