Dedicated to organizing healthcare assets through planning, information sharing and coordination to ensure that healthcare organizations have the support they need in order to provide health care to residents and visitors of western North Carolina.
The MAHPC SMAT & MRC is made up of almost 130 volunteers. Although there is wide diversity among the team, the one thing they all have in common is a desire to help during times of greatest need.
Although we are a State Medical Assistance Team, and also a Medical Reserve Corps, volunteers from all professions are needed. The skill sets brought to the team by medical and non-medical personnel are all crucial to its success.
MAHPC SMAT works to provide opportunities for you to learn a new skill or improve on ones you already have. Whether you want to learn about satellite equipment, help build an alternate care site out of tents, or practice your profession in an austere environment, M-SMAT is the place.
The MAHPC SMAT is the perfect place for people that love to give back to their communities, challenge themselves, and participate in unique drills, exercises, and deployments. Once you’re an active member of our team, you’ll have the opportunity to assist in providing medical care to those most in need.
