Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
HCC members are delineated in the 2017-2022 Health Care Preparedness and Response Capabilities.
Urban and rural HCCs may have different membership compositions based on population characteristics, geography, and types of hazards. For example, in rural and frontier areas—where the distance between hospitals may exceed 50 miles and where the next closest hospitals are also critical access hospitals with limited services—tribal health centers, referral centers, or support services may play a more prominent role in the HCC.
