training together saves lives!
When a disaster hits a community or a region, the entire healthcare system will be impacted and will have to respond. All healthcare 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 and training together saves lives. The Healthcare Coalitions of Maine include all healthcare partners within the state including, but not limited to:
Ambulatory Surgery Center Assisted Living/Long Term Care Facility/Skilled Nursing Facility Behavioral Health Dialysis Emergency Communication Centers Emergency Management Emergency Medical Services Fire Departments Home Health Hospice Hospital- Acute Care Hospital- Non-Acute Care Law Enforcement Outpatient Medical Services (community health center/clinic/etc.) Public Health/Environmental Health Other partnership organizations
