From the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association (VHHA):

“In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association (VHHA) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) are embarking on a new effort to allocate support and resources to long-term care facilities across the Commonwealth. This initiative – facilitated through the Virginia Healthcare Emergency Management Program (VHEMP) and Russell Phillips and Associates (RPA), a Jensen Hughes Company and a leader in emergency preparedness and response consultation for post-acute providers – will provide support and resources to long-term care facilities in a number of areas including infection prevention and control, access to personal protective equipment (PPE) and other medical supplies, access to COVID-19 testing and support, clinical practice and staffing support, and the sharing of best practices.

This partnership builds on the work of the development of the Long-Term Care Mutual Aid Plan (LTC-MAP) and Memorandum of Understanding, which was established from 2015-2018 when it was formalized.”
