Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded additional funds from the Central Ohio Trauma System through the Center for Disease Control passing through the Ohio Department of Health for work to be completed on the regional healthcare coalition summit.

The Franklin County Healthcare Coalition is a local group of healthcare agencies (hospitals, long/short term care, hospice, home health, dialysis centers) put together to meet federal grant requirements.

The FCHC meets twice per year.

FISCAL IMPACT: The program is funded by the Central Ohio Trauma System and does not generate revenue or require a city match.
