The Big Bend Healthcare Coalition (BBHCC) was formed in response to the need to better coordinate and leverage the resources and capabilities of all healthcare providers in preparing, responding, and recovering from disasters. DHHS/ASPR realized that major health related emergencies, such as an H1N1 outbreak, or Florida’s own experience with ten hurricanes between 2004-2005 required a more coordinated healthcare system that would form from collaborative relationships. They realized there is more synergy generated when healthcare and support agencies work together for a common purpose in a coordinated and collaborative fashion. This is also in concert with FEMA’s concept of “whole community”, which fosters a broader collaborative network of healthcare and support providers who can support the needs of their communities during a disaster.
