Southeast/Southeast Central Ohio Healthcare Coalition (SEOHC)

The mission of the SEOHC Coalition, an affiliate of COTS, is to create a state of readiness and response by promoting better outcomes through collaboration thus achieving quality healthcare delivery during a crisis.

What is the value of being a member of the SE/SEC Region Ohio Healthcare Coalition? Our Coalition Members improve their disaster readiness.

     COTS aides our partners by providing:

  • Assistance in meeting accreditation standards and CMS emergency preparedness requirements
  • Better time management through access to regionally developed and maintained plans and tools
  • Access to a secure cloud-based disaster information management system for information sharing and situational awareness to assist agencies with planning and responding
  • Coordination of planning services that benefit healthcare facilities across our region
  • Facilitation of information-sharing so agencies can make informed decisions

Our Coalition Members have access to resources, trainings, and exercises.                    

    Such as:

  • Collaborative exercises (tabletop, full scale)
  • Annual disaster Summit
  • Access to emergency preparedness caches
  • Access to preparedness plans


Our Coalition Members are part of a region-wide emergency response and recovery.

  • The COTS HIL will be a key partner in your organization’s response to and recovery from our next healthcare emergency.


 Our Coalition Members have a voice at the table.

  • Knowing that all emergencies begin locally and organizations will need to manage an emergency with their local partners before regional, state, or federal assets are called upon, the Southeast/Southeast Central Region Coalition was built to include our partners at a local level.
  • Our local county coalitions feed into the Southeast/Southeast Central Ohio Healthcare Coalition.                                               
  • Our coalition is only as strong as the weakest link. We need all agencies/organizations participating and preparing for the next emergency.
  • If your agency doesn't have a seat at the table, your voice and needs won’t be heard and you could be missing out on valuable resources.
  • Organizations can’t do it alone.
