Emergency Management, Safety & Security

Doctors Hospital at Renaissance has a robust Emergency Management Program providing for response to disasters and large-scale emergency events. The all-hazard response plans address six critical areas as described by the Joint Commission:
  • Communication
  • Resources and Assets
  • Safety and Security
  • Staff Roles and Responsibilities
  • Utilities Management
  • Patient Clinical and Support Activities

DHR is a member of the Healthcare Preparedness Program for the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Collaboratively, the partnership facilities recognized that their substantial and complementary strengths provide a unique opportunity to create a plan providing emergency preparedness resources that would be difficult for the partners to provide independently. With strategic planning initiatives for sharing medical equipment, supplies, and personnel in place, the rapid and successful movement of critical resources in times of crisis ensure the healthcare community is self-sustainable for at least 96 hours.

Doctors Hospital at Renaissance continually works to:
  • Identify issues and challenges that may confront our region in the event of a disaster.
  • Assemble resources that can be used to aid DHR and other healthcare organizations across the Valley in the event of a disaster.
  • Maintain policies and procedures for mutual assistance and support that shall enable the continued or expanded treatment and services to the community.

Emergency preparedness and safety are very important to Doctors Hospital at Renaissance. We continuously work towards creating the safest environment possible for our patients, visitors, and staff members.

Doctors Hospital at Renaissance supports the hospital’s readiness and response to disaster related events by implementing the four phases of emergency management: Emergency Management
  • Mitigation
  • Preparedness
  • Response, and
  • Recovery

DHR Emergency Management annually reviews its all-hazard emergency response plans. The planning process uses risk based analysis and research. The Emergency Management Coordinator then collaborates with local, state, and federal entities to ensure our plans are in alignment with community response.

Whether disasters are natural or man-made, or even acts of terrorism, being prepared is the best way to protect you and your family. Creating a personal family plan is a short and simple activity that will help to minimize the impact of unexpected disasters or emergencies.

Doctors Hospital at Renaissance is a resource for personal and community emergency preparedness. In this section you will find a list of local, state, and federal resources to help you develop a plan for you and your loved ones as well as relevant monthly topics for consideration.
