Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the Center for Disease Control through the Ohio Department of Health to Central Ohio Trauma System. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $7,000.00 in grant money for the period July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022.

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. Columbus Public Health has agreed to lead this coalition. Franklin County Healthcare Coalition (FCHC) members may assume other roles and responsibilities during emergencies that impact the healthcare system in our county, region, or state. FCHC members will communicate, maintain situational awareness, and share resources with each other, other coalitions in the central Ohio region, and healthcare partners in other regions. The FCHC meets twice per year.

This grant provides funds to continue the coordination of a county-level coalition in Franklin County.

FISCAL IMPACT: The program is funded by the Central Ohio Trauma System and does not generate revenue or require a city match. ($7,000.00)
