Safe Environments

Hospitals are at the center of efforts to build strong, healthy and resilient communities.

To support these activities, MHA provides resources to assist hospitals through community health needs assessments, emergency preparedness, patient and worker safety, and community and population health activities.

Our regulatory, quality improvement, legal and emergency preparedness staff are coordinating to find, build and deliver information, guidance and resources to support hospitals’ efforts on and off campus. Through these efforts, we’re working to develop safer care environments and resilient communities.
