BorderRAC is relied upon to unite regional medical providers and serve as a strategic partner for the Texas legislature, state and local agencies, and most importantly for the health and welfare of our region. We are integral to helping hospitals and other healthcare organizations in emergency preparedness to respond to a wide-scale natural disaster or terrorism attack. We are a healthcare coalition with a comprehensive inter-professional membership of hospitals, EMS, and other healthcare agencies. Our committees work to reduce injury, illness and preventable deaths in the areas of disaster, trauma, stroke, heart disease, pediatrics, and new moms and babies.
BorderRAC serves behind the scenes in situations such as the tragic El Paso Shooting and deployment of the mobile medical unit to Hurricane Laura. We work and coordinate with local, state and federal agencies. Our COVID response remains active - we have distributed over 17 million pieces of PPE (personal protective equipment), facilitated the monoclonal antibody infusion center and alternate care site. We continue to provide guidance to long term care facilities as well as coordinate supplemental staffing and durable medical equipment for regional hospitals.
We need your help to continue our mission to improve the health of El Paso.
