We’re taking things to the next level
Reid Health has been verified as a Level III Trauma Center by a special committee of the American College of Surgeons. We’re taking trauma care in our region to a new level for the benefit of the communities we serve.
Here’s why this is important for our region
Reid Health has been validated as providing prompt assessment, resuscitation, surgery, intensive care, and stabilization of injured patients. While many hospitals perform these same services, Reid performs them to the level of quality required by the American College of Surgeons for verification.
Our team of emergency medicine doctors, surgeons, and anesthesiologists is on-call 24/7. Specialist, such as orthopedic doctors or cardiologists, are also available when needed. Reid also has proper agreements with Level II and Level I facilities, should your care require a transfer.
“Level III indicates we have taken the necessary steps to ensure trauma patients receive care in an organized approach through rapid assessment, resuscitation and stabilization.”
-Ryan Williams, RN, Trauma Program Manager and EMS Coordinator at Reid Health
