I saw this posted today (7/6/23) on the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists blog (originally published at Grist): "Extreme heat will cost the US $1 billion in health care costs — this summer alone" - https://grist.org/health/extreme-heat-will-cost-the-us-1-billion-in-health-care-costs-this-summer-alone/

As is true for all incidents/emergencies/disasters/etc. - every one has an ESF#8 - Public Health impact. And Heat Waves will impact hospitals, healthcare systems, etc., including their own Emergency Management (as compared to the obvious impact to their Emergency Departments) capabilities and missions.
