Hospital Evacuation during a Wildfire and Pandemic Avista Adventist Shares their Experience

On December 30th, 2021, healthcare workers at Centura Health’s Avista Adventist Hospital were managing a pandemic and planning for a winter storm. The hospital, which includes a large neonatal intensive care unit, was full, with less than 5% capacity. Unbeknownst to the staff working during that holiday weekend, the Marshall Fire was approaching the building, and would cause some of them to lose their homes while forcing the hospital to evacuate in under two hours. ASPR TRACIE met with five subject matter experts to learn more about their experiences, challenges, and lessons learned.
