U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
Hospital Preparedness Program

The Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) enables health care systems to save lives during emergencies that exceed day-to-day capacity of health and emergency response systems. As the only source of federal funding that supports regional health care system preparedness, HPP promotes a sustained national focus to improve patient outcomes, minimize the need for supplemental state and federal resources during emergencies, and enable rapid recovery.  HPP prepares the health care system to save lives through the development and sustainment of regional health care coalitions (HCCs) that incentivize diverse and often competitive health care organizations with differing priorities and objectives to work together.  HPP funding focuses on operationalizing HCCs for effective response by optimizing their membership, as well as population and geographic coverage.
