The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response yesterday awarded to Denver Health and Hospital Authority a $3 million cooperative agreement to demonstrate how a Regional Disaster Health Response System could improve medical surge and specialty care during a national emergency.

ASPR also awarded $1.5 million to Nebraska Medicine in Omaha and $1.6 million to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston to continue their RDHRS demonstration sites.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the real and serious threats our nation faces to healthcare delivery and the immediate, even overwhelming, need for specialty care that occurs during a public health emergency,” said Robert Kadlec, M.D., HHS assistant secretary for preparedness and response. “The Regional Disaster Health Response System establishes a model that draws on the existing U.S. healthcare infrastructure, pulling together private sector and federal resources in a way that has never been done to build specialized capabilities that could save lives during a public health disaster.”
