As soon as the airline knows their plane is going there, they're making phone calls. The airport operator, FBOs, fuelers, even hotels and transportation companies. Everyone needs to be informed and be ready, just in case.
Typically the common diversion airports will have this process down to a science. Airline calls the airport operator and they set up the rest.
Many airlines use a centralized load control, so regarding loading and W&B, they fax or email whatever load info is needed to a contact person at the diversion airport. Can also be done locally if anyone is trained.
Regarding the medical equipment replenishment...that I do not know.
