Award STock

GALVESTON – The Regional Healthcare Preparedness Coalition is a preparedness committee of the Southeast Texas Regional Advisory Council which provides collaborative planning and response to emergencies in a multi-disciplinary approach to preserve medical infrastructure for the region.

At the 2022 Regional Preparedness Symposium held Nov. 2-4 in Galveston, Tyler County Hospital received the Regional Healthcare Preparedness Coalition Excellence in Preparedness Award for the small hospital division.

The coalition began when several facilities in the Houston Medical Center joined together to face major events as a group of facilities as opposed to individually.

Today the Regional Healthcare Preparedness Coalition is made up of 25 counties divided into five corridors with Tyler County being part of the North Corridor.

Annually, Southeast Texas Regional Advisory Council and the Regional Healthcare Preparedness Coalition host a Regional Preparedness Symposium that brings together our region as well as many others for a time of learning and networking. At this annual event, an award is presented to one small, one medium and one large facility in our 25 counties for exhibiting excellence and commitment to comprehensive emergency management in their regional community. Each facility is scored on two tiers. The first one includes their participation in training, facility reporting, meeting attendance and drill participation.

Secondly, the facility is scored based on their commitment to enhancing preparedness at their facility in at least three of six areas. These areas include leadership support, emergency management contribution, community involvement, innovation, planning and other.
