The Central  and West Central Minnesota Healthcare Preparedness Programs are healthcare coalitions made up of members from Clinics, Hospitals, and Long-Term-Care facilities, Emergency Management, Emergency Medical Services, Local Public Health Departments, and many other agencies/organizations. Working collaboratively the partners plan, prepare, and respond to the needs of victims of natural or man-made disasters, bio-terrorism, and other health emergencies. Together we have and always will, provide care to the citizens of the Central and West Central Regions as well as the State of Minnesota with the quality and expertise that is second to none!
