Emergency Management at DHMC

Responsibility for emergency preparedness at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is assigned to a member of the senior leadership team, and activities are led by our physician medical director and emergency management coordinator.

A broad-based Emergency Management Committee meets monthly, and several subcommittees and workgroups meet regularly to address specific areas of planning, exercise development, and education.  All major events are managed by use of the Hospital Incident Command System (HICS), and emergency management is often used to plan for anticipated major events.
