CHA to Participate in Federal Hospital Preparedness Grant New staff member hired to support grant program
Effective Jan. 3, CHA has re-engaged in the federal Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response Hospital Preparedness Program grant, administered by the California Department of Public Health Emergency Preparedness Office. To support this program and to assist participating hospitals, as well as the state, in meeting preparedness requirements, CHA has hired Mary Massey — a registered nurse and a participant in the prior hospital preparedness grant program — as a full-time hospital preparedness consultant. She will report to and work closely with Cheri Hummel, CHA’s vice president of emergency management and facilities. Massey brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the program, given her diverse background in clinical services, emergency management and hospital operations.
