From Hospitals to Healthcare Coalitions: Transforming Health Preparedness and Response in our Communities
From Hospitals to Healthcare Coalitions: Transforming Health Preparedness and Response in Our Communities, the program’s first state-by-state report, identifies the advances that states have made in preparing hospitals for all types of disasters. The report also discusses the next steps the program will take to boost community resilience.
All states, eight U.S. territories and four large metropolitan areas participate in the cooperative agreement grant program, which provides federal funds, technical assistance, and guidelines for hospital preparedness. Of the more than 6,300 hospitals across the nation, more than 85 percent take advantage of the program.
