What We Do

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention promote capabilities to improve healthcare delivery before, during and after an emergency.

New Jersey’s Healthcare Coalitions work to achieve these capabilities through activities based on the state’s needs. These capabilities give New Jersey’s health and medical partners the opportunity to develop and implement a statewide strategic vision for health sector preparedness and responses.


The mission goal of New Jersey’s Healthcare Coalitions is to promote and to enhance the emergency preparedness and response capabilities of healthcare entities throughout the state.

The Coalitions do this by:

  • Building relationships and partnerships.
  • Leveraging existing relationships and partnerships to cost share on regional projects and initiatives.
  • Facilitating communication, information and resource sharing.
  • Promoting situational awareness among RHCC members.
  • Coordinating training, drills and exercises.
  • Strengthening medical surge capacity and capabilities.
  • Supporting emergency management and Emergency Support Function partners.
  • Integrating within the established process of emergency management in order to build and sustain healthcare preparedness and response capabilities through planning, organizing, equipping, training, and exercising as a healthcare coalition region.
  • Maximizing movement and utilization of existing resources.
