Become a Partner Healthcare Facility

Can we count on you?

The National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) needs your facility’s help in the event of a disaster, terrorist attack, military contingency, or other public health emergency. Your partnership is crucial to the ASPR’s mission of saving lives and protecting Americans from health security threats.

When disaster strikes, NDMS teams arrive on site to protect health and augment healthcare systems to stabilize patients, and, when necessary, evacuate patients to designated reception facilities within the NDMS healthcare network.​

We need you to be a destination for evacuated injured or ill Americans

Currently we have over 1,600 partner healthcare facilities nationwide that have signed agreements with the NDMS to accept patients in response to a large or catastrophic public health and/or military health emergency. In order to get the state, local, tribal, and territorial network to optimum level, we need your help.

This is a completely voluntary program for any type of healthcare facility to participate in. Upon activation, healthcare facilities agree to make every effort to make beds available to NDMS federal patients. Participating partner healthcare facility with a signed NDMS memorandum of agreement (MOA) will receive reimbursement  up to 125% of their Medicare rate for qualifying NDMS federal patient care.
