Healthcare coalition membership to reflect EMS and other partners

EVHCLogoDuring the March 2017 TEMS Board of Director’s meeting, Eastern Virginia Healthcare Coalition’s (EVHC) program manager Glenn McBride presented an overview of the coalition and the emergency preparedness capabilities they will be addressing during the next five-year federal hospital preparedness program (HPP) grant cycle.

"The HPP grant remains focused on collaborative medical response and communications capabilities during patient surge events, especially disaster," said McBride. "This upcoming grant also encourages expanded community engagement with emergency preparedness partners outside of the hospital setting, particularly with emergency medical services (EMS) and medical transport agencies as well as emergency managers from the 26 jurisdictions that make up the Eastern Virginia Healthcare Coalition. As a result, the EVHC is modifying membership in the upcoming grant cycle to include these valuable partners."
