Regional Healthcare Coordination Center (RHCC)

The RHCC is a multi-agency coordination center established by NVHA in 2003 to coordinate the emergency response operations of the NVHA membership facilities in response to a major emergency.  With its primary office located in Herndon, Virginia, the facility features the ability to communicate with all area fire-rescue agencies, hospitals, and nursing homes, a large meeting space which can be used as a command center, a dedicated communications room, and redundant communications abilities including satellite telephones and amateur radios. 

NVHA also operates a redundant RHCC at Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg in the event a back-up location is needed or multiple events are occurring.
