Background. Public Health Center is the front line that plays a major role in disaster preparedness and management, so efforts are needed to increase the resilience of the Public Health Center to ensure that the Public Health Center remains resilient, safe and continues to operate in the event of a disaster. To prevent the impact of paralysis of health services at the Public Health Center, a tool is needed to measure the resilience of the Public Health Center. Objective. This research aims to identify indicators of Public Health Center resilience which were synthesized from various sources. Methods. This research was a cross-sectional study among 30 Public Health Centers in flood-prone areas of East Java Province that experienced floods from September to October 2021. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to assess the suitability of the structural model of Public Health Center resilience. The validity of the questionnaire has been tested using the Coefficient of Reproducibility and Coefficient of Scalability with values of Kr = 0.903 and Ks = 0.903 so that it is declared valid. Results. The results showed that the reliability value = 0.843>0.7, which indicates adequate reliability. All items in the Health Center Resilience questionnaire have a factor loading greater than 0.32 and obtained AVE > 0.5, which indicates good convergent validity, and CR obtained > 0.7 means that the questions in the questionnaire are reliable. Conclusion. In conclusion, there are 13 indicators that make up the significant Public Health Center Resilience questionnaire.
