The Southwest Healthcare Preparedness Coalition is based in Southwest Minnesota. We work together with hospitals, health services, emergency services and many other entities to enhance our response to local, regional, statewide, and national emergencies.
The Southwest Healthcare Preparedness Coalition is based in Southwest Minnesota. Our coalition represents 23 hospitals, 43 primary care clinics, 50 Nursing Homes, 103 EMS groups and two tribal governments in our 16-county region. Additional coalition members include: State and local representatives from Public Health, Homeland Security and Emergency Management, the Minnesota Department of Health, and the Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board. We all work together toward enhancing our response to local, regional, statewide, and national emergencies.
In case of an emergency please contact the Regional Hospital Preparedness Coordinator (RHPC) on call by dialing 1-800-259-0195
Effective July 1, 2015, The Southwest Emergency Preparedness Team will be changing its name to be the Southwest Healthcare Preparedness Coalition. This name change aligns us with a majority of the healthcare preparedness regions in Minnesota and is a more accurate representation of the actual work we accomplish. We will maintain the www.mnswept.com website domain for the indefinite future, but all announcements, plans, activities, and the non-profit paperwork will reflect the new name.
Due to construction at the Lyon County Courthouse, Coalition Meetings will be rotating to various locations. Please check the emails that Rebecca sends around, or if you have questions, please contact Coalition staff. For September 23, we will be at the Marshall YMCA. A slight change in plans from what was previously mentioned, we will not be doing the Alex Tech 800 MHz radio training. That will happen in October.
The Coalition adopted a mission/vision and guiding values on August 25, 2010.
Vision: Attain sustainable emergency preparedness in Southwest Minnesota.
