CHA Hospital Preparedness Program
The California Hospital Association’s Hospital Preparedness Program (CHA HPP) provides ongoing support to California hospitals and health systems in all-hazard’s disaster planning and response.
The CHA HPP is financed by U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) grant funds awarded by the California Department of Public Health and its program objectives are consistent with those of the federal grant program.
CHA coordinates the annual disaster planning conference for California hospitals. The conference is the largest gathering of hospital emergency preparedness planners in the state. Attendees include hospital personnel, community partners, and state officials. Conference topics cover the full spectrum of emergency response topics relevant to health care facilities.
