Medical Coordination Centers

Medical Coordination Centers (MMC)

The Burn Center at Saint Barnabas, in partnership with New Jersey Department of Health and Human Services (NJ DOHHS) has established a regional 96 hour burn mass casualty disaster plan. This plan is coordinated and implemented through state-sponsored Medical Coordination Centers (MCC), including a special Burn Medical Coordination Center (Burn MCC) located at RWJBarnabas Health corporate offices.

MCCs are equipped with redundant technologies designed to communicate with each other, and with various other local, state or federal agencies to support disaster response efforts.
