Get to know Region E
The Region E Executive Committee is comprised of one representative from each of our core members: Hospital, Public Health, EMA, EMS, and Skilled Nursing.
The Region E Healthcare Coalition coordinates regional planning efforts among a 12-county region that includes Barrow, Clarke, Elbert, Franklin, Greene, Jackson, Hart, Madison, Morgan, Oconee, Oglethorpe, and Walton Counties. The coalition works closely with a broad spectrum of healthcare providers, local and state public health entities, local and state emergency management, and other key response agencies.
When a disaster hits a community or region, healthcare systems will be impacted and may need to respond. When healthcare systems already have relationships, it is easier to work together to efficiently respond to the disaster. Coordinated regional planning will create a more prepared and resilient healthcare system. As a member, your agency will:
Build ties with healthcare organizations, emergency management agencies, & community partners.
Work together in the planning process to address regional preparedness gaps.
Gain access to training, exercises, and regional assets provided by Region E.
