emergency Preparedness

The transmission of Ebola to health care workers in the United States in the fall of 2014 underscored the importance that hospitals continue to prepare and be ready for the next emergency. From influenza to preparing for a global health threat, it is imperative that Minnesota hospitals continue to be vigilant in their emergency preparedness and stand ready to provide care and support to our communities.
