The CHA Hospital Preparedness Program is a federal grant-funded
program. The program includes an executive director, one
administrative coordinator and five hospital preparedness
coordinators (HPCs). Program activities include but are not
limited to: providing technical assistance, conducting site
visits and support to hospitals; emergency management program
review; identification of hospital needs and priorities;
assistance with meeting HPP deliverables; facilitation and
liaison with local jurisdictions and community partners.
Additionally, program staff research best practices develop tools
to assist hospitals with strengthening their Emergency Management
Program and their Emergency Operations Plans. This program also
provides various local training opportunities. There is no cost
to hospitals for the CHA HPP program services and tools.
