The Eastern Virginia Healthcare Coalition (EVHC) works with healthcare organizations and providers, public health departments, and community partners to care for our community before, during and after an emergency. It’s a collaboration of healthcare organizations that come together for the purpose of saving lives and preserving the health of our patients, our residents, our clients and our staff in case of a natural or manmade disaster.


The Eastern Virginia Healthcare Coalition (EVHC) core members and partners collaborate to strengthen regional healthcare emergency preparedness and resiliency.

The EVHC strives to:

  • Build relationships and partnerships
  • Coordinate inclusive regional emergency planning
  • Provide for information and resource sharing
  • Develop and maintaining redundant communications systems
  • Improve and maintain medical surge capacities and capabilities
  • Provide regional training and exercises
  • Strengthen healthcare organization resiliency

What does the Eastern Virginia Healthcare Coalition do when there’s not an emergency? EVHC helps members stay prepared by conducting training and  exercises and sharing best practices and lessons learned. It’s a networking organization that benefits everyone involved. 

While it is primarily funded through federal grants, TEMS acts as the fiduciary agent for EVHC and the program team is located in the TEMS office in Chesapeake, VA. The Eastern Virginia Healthcare Coalition is open to any healthcare organization in the Eastern Region of Virginia and participation is critically important to everyone involved.
