Health Care Coalitions
Since 2002, Minnesota has established and maintained eight regional Health Care Coalitions defined by geographical boundaries. Each HCC is made of multi-disciplinary partners (minimally including: hospitals, emergency medical services, emergency management, and public health agencies) responsible for ensuring health care services are minimally impacted during emergencies or planned events. In addition, they provide a level of stability and redundancy of preparedness and response services within their communities. This is achieved through: addressing resource requests, leading and engaging in information sharing, and coordination of the incident or event.
For more information on how to connect with your HCC leaders, please reference the Regional Health Care Preparedness Coordinators.
