The Northwest Healthcare Response Network is a collaboration 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.
Whether responding to an immediate surge of patients or a contagion, the Network has the relationships, systems and plans needed to ensure a coordinated regional response to any crisis.
