I have had discussions other Hams that are employed in Public Health. We are discussing how to associate as a " club" to provide a more organized means of communicating with one another. Any opinions on how to best do this? Does anyone know of a special interest group fo the use of amateur radio in public health applications?

In my opinion, these are the "pioneers" in the health care / ham radio gig.

Quote from an article on their page titled How Often Do Hospitals Need Hams?

"114 on-site standby operations (pre-planned and short-notice phone/communications system repairs and cutovers)"

The word in red is the one that bothers me.  If you are maintaining communications for a entity, during a planned outage, have you not violated FCC Part 97 rules?  The same applies to repairs and cutovers.
