Keywords: crisis management; health care facilities; morbidity; covid-19; war.


This article discusses the relationship between the morbidity rate of a territorial community and crisis management in healthcare facilities, as well as how this relationship can affect the overall response to public health emergencies. The study’s relevance is due to the crisis in Ukraine, particularly the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the war that has been going on for about a year and requires improvement of the management system in healthcare facilities. The study aims to determine the relationship between different types of crisis situations and crisis management, as well as to study specific measures to improve the crisis situation. The study used general scientific methods of cognition, in particular, the method of analysis, which was used to study scientific literature, and synthesis of information, which allowed to identify of key aspects of crisis management, induction, and deduction, which allowed systematizing of crisis management measures depending on the level of morbidity and the type of morbidity prevalent in the territorial community. The study’s results made it possible to develop various anti-crisis management measures depending on the increase in the incidence rate and the activation of military operations, which also increased the level of injuries among the population. These measures require a coordinated management policy of the healthcare institution with the community, local regulatory authorities, and regulatory institutions.
