Emergency Preparedness

Georgia Healthcare Coalitions

Georgia’s Healthcare Preparedness Program is directly funded by the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response(ASPR) through the Hospital Preparedness Program (OHR). HPP’s mission is to prepare the health care system to save lives through the support of regional health care coalitions. HCCs are groups of health care and response organizations that collaborate to prepare for and respond to medical surge events. HCCs incentivize diverse and often competitive health care organizations to work together. To that end, we have formed the Georgia Healthcare Coalitions (GHC911.org) website as the one-stop-shop for healthcare preparedness resources in the state of Georgia.

Why become a member?

Membership is available at no cost to you. Members may attend their quarterly Coalition meetings where they can participate in planning, training, and exercises. Coalitions provide a space to collaborate and support other members during disaster response and recovery. Your organization will build new and stronger relationships with other healthcare organizations, complete CMS guidelines, learn about available resources in the community, and have access to training and grant funding.

Who can be a member?

All healthcare organizations and community partners are invited to join their coalitions and register for a GHC911 account.

Georgia Healthcare Coalition Assistance Program

As part of the Healthcare Preparedness Program, the Georgia Hospital Association Research and Education Foundation serves as the financial liaison between Georgia’s fourteen healthcare coalitions and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (as the Specialty Coordinating Hospital for Pediatrics). GHAREF assists these coalitions and CHOA, in supply procurement, class and training course logistics, and travel assistance to increase preparedness efforts in each respective region. For more information about this project, please contact coalitionsupport@gha.org.
