To bring the medical and health community together.



The Ventura County Health Care Coalition (VCHCC) is a collaborative network of healthcare organizations and their respective public and private sector response partners within our Operational Area. VCHCC serves as a voluntary multidisciplinary, multi-agency group that assists in the coordination of Emergency Management and Emergency Support Function (ESF) #8 with preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation activities. In addition, the following VCHCC functions support Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) standard 4.1.1A:

  • Work with the appropriate level of emergency operations providers by sharing information among participating healthcare organizations and with jurisdictional authorities to promote common situational awareness.
  • Support the needs of healthcare organizations through collaboration of coalition partners’ various Emergency Operation Plans.
  • Meet community needs by promoting the quality of disaster patient/victim care services and improving overall healthcare response capabilities.
  • Develop and implementing effective practices including continuity planning, education, training, and evaluation as they relate to emergency preparedness.
  • Serve to strengthen and sustain the Public Health and medical response system by properly analyzing gaps.
  • Promote healthcare providers’ capacity to anticipate the plan of care in the event of a medical surge.
