When a disaster hits a community or a region, the entire health care system will be impacted.

All health care organizations, from the largest hospital to a small community health center, will need to work together in a coordinated fashion to effectively respond to the disaster and work towards recovery.  Planning together saves lives!

Health care organizations make plans for their own facilities.  Hospitals have planned with other hospitals.  Nursing homes have planned with other nursing homes.  During all healthcare emergencies, decisions made by one health care organization will impact others.  Facilities are often counting on the same resources, however, planning together will create a more prepared and resilient healthcare system.
