REDiLink is the healthcare coalition newsletter. We share all upcoming training opportunities, planning announcements, and resources through this communication channel.
Formerly Washington State Region 7, Region 8 and Region 9 Healthcare Coalitions, the Regional Emergency and Disaster (REDi) Healthcare Coalition is the healthcare coalition serving the 19 counties and 4 tribes of eastern Washington. Our mission is to prepare for, respond to and recover from crisis using all available resources to provide patient care at the appropriate level and in the most efficient manner. In all our work, we strive to build emergency preparedness across the healthcare system to create resilient communities across our region.
To fulfill our mission, the coalition collaborates with hospitals, clinics, long-term care providers, dialysis centers, blood centers, emergency management, public health, tribal health and others increase regional healthcare system preparedness and response. We welcome these partners to collaborate with us as we plan for, train, exercise and respond to emergencies impacting eastern Washington. Please learn more about joining our work on our Involvement page.
The need to support the healthcare needs of our community during an emergency extends well beyond jurisdictional boundaries. We acknowledge that much of the work done in our region is in partnership with the surrounding areas. We are grateful to our state, north Idaho, eastern Oregon, and western Washington partners who support us, and who we also support, as we collectively prepare for and response to crises impacting the healthcare system.
The REDi Healthcare Coalition is funded through Washington State Department of Health under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and its Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness & Response Healthcare Preparedness Program grant.
