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 leads the local healthcare coalition, which is an affiliation of private and public partners working together to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies. Watch our video to learn more about us and hear from some of our partners.

Together, we build capabilities that can’t be achieved alone. Through collaborative planning, training, exercises and coordination of resources, the Network drives the 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.
