We lead regional healthcare collaboration to effectively respond to and recover from emergencies and disasters

Together We're Building a Disaster-Resilient Region

About Us

The Northwest Healthcare Response Network is a healthcare coalition: an affiliation of private and public partners working together to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies. Watch our video by clicking here.

Together, we build capabilities that can’t be achieved alone. Through collaborative planning, training, exercises and coordination of resources, the Network leads a regional effort to build a disaster-resilient healthcare system.

Since 2005, whether responding to an immediate surge of patients or an infectious disease outbreak, the Network has the relationships, systems and plans needed to ensure a coordinated regional response to any crisis.
