CVMC Receives Designation as a Definitive Care Provider Facility

9/26/2016

This September, Carson Valley Medical Center joined the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) team as a definitive care provider facility.

The  National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) combines Federal and non-Federal medical resources into a unified response to meet natural and man-made disaster needs, as well as support patient treatment requirements from military contingencies.  With the new designation, CVMC is now a recognized medical facility to support Federal agencies in the management and coordination of medical response to major emergencies and federally declared disasters, such as natural disasters, major transportation accidents, technological disasters, and acts of terrorism. 

The NDMS is an interagency partnership between the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Homeland Security (HS), the  Department of Defense (DoD), and the  Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) and is based on the 2005 Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)between these agencies.
