FOR HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS
Region 9 Healthcare Coalition
The Washington state Region 9 Healthcare Coalition (HCC) works to strengthen the emergency preparedness and response planning for all aspects of health care. We are a group of 250+ committed volunteers who work in healthcare across the 10 counties and three tribes of Eastern Washington, and we invite new partners to join us!
The mission of the Region 9 Healthcare Coalition is to prepare for, respond to and recover from crisis using all available resources to provide patient care at the appropriate level and in the most efficient manner.
