Who should attend the Summit?

This summit is intended for non-hospital healthcare providers, such as dialysis centers, home health agencies, hospice care, and others.

What is the goal of the event?

The goal of the Houston Healthcare Emergency Preparedness Summit is to provide an opportunity to let smaller, non-hospital healthcare agencies learn from each other, as well as experts in their field about planning for all types of emergencies.  This is accomplished by providing information in presentations throughout the day, and an Expo that allows one-on-one time with regulatory and emergency response agencies.
