What We Do

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Strategic 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.

By participating in N.J.’s Regional Coalitions, members are provided with emergency management support, collaboration, assistance, networks and expertise from peers, and coalition leadership. Leadership has direct access to state and federal agencies to meet member needs, and focus on what they can do for the Coalition Members to:

  • Connect members to share experiences and expertise to improve individual planning efforts
  • Understand member emergency management planning status and needs via one-to-one meetings, calls, member type meeting, coalition meetings and more.
  • Engage local, state and federal entities to provide expertise based on topics of interest to coalition members during meetings
  • Encourage engagement in topic specific workgroups that are member initiated, topic specific workgroups such as workplace violence, exercise development, response plan development, etc.
  • Assist in organizational regulatory compliance Develop and implement exercises to test plans and identify gaps and solutions to resolve them
  • In an event, the regional coalitions provide structure that focuses on healthcare needs and solutions as well as state and federal requirements.
