What We Do

Diasterdrill CMCWhen disaster strikes, the community counts upon Catholic Medical Center to react in an organized and effective manner. This type of reaction depends to a large extent upon two main factors. First, Catholic Medical Center has a thorough and yet flexible plan for taking care of disaster victims from either inside or outside the facility and second, employees who are assigned responsibilities under the Emergency Management Disaster Preparedness Team are acquainted with how the plan functions and exactly what their jobs will be in the event of a disaster.

Catholic Medical Center’s Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response program develops and disseminates programs and services in the areas of healthcare and public health emergency preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation that includes but are not limited to business continuity planning, assessments, education and training, drills and exercises and program implementation and evaluation.
