Hospitals provide triage, assessment, decontamination, emergency care/treatment, and isolation/quarantine of patients as stated in the regional Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) requirements. 

Each hospital in Region 3 has developed an emergency response plan to address internal plan activation, emergency staffing, surge capacity including additional bed expansion, isolation patient management, acquisition of additional supplies, equipment, pharmaceuticals, emergency evacuation, shelter-in-place, fatality management, and coordination with their local office of emergency management (EM) and other hospitals in the region.

As patient numbers increase beyond the capacity of the impacted hospital or other challenges evolve, they will:

  • Activate their internal Emergency Operations Plan (EOP)
  • Contact the Central Medical Emergency Direction (CMED) center
  • Contact the HMCC Duty Officer
