Emergency Care

Reid Emergency Care

We're taking things to the next level.

Reid Health has earned a Primary Stroke Center certification from the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) and 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.

Primary Stroke Center

Reid Health is now a Primary Stroke Center. The certification implements updated guidelines for care that improve stroke survival. Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the nation, and someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds in the U.S. Time is critical in stroke care and anyone experiencing stroke-like symptoms should go to the closest, most appropriate facility immediately.

If Reid Health happens to be the closest option, the Primary Stroke Center certification means the latest treatment protocols will be followed in rapid fashion, including, when appropriate, quick transfers to Comprehensive Stroke Centers

Level III Trauma Center

Reid Health Hospital has been verified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level III Trauma Center. The recognition comes from Reid Health’s dedication to providing optimal care for injured patients. Our emergency trauma center is one of only a few in the state of Indiana.

What does this mean for our patients? Reid Health is able to provide prompt assessment, resuscitation, surgery, intensive care, and stabilization of injured patients with 24 hour immediate coverage by emergency medicine physicians, prompt availability of general surgeons and anesthesiologists, transfer agreements with Level II or Level I facilities, and other requirements.  Read more: Reid Health Verified as Level III Trauma Center.

Level III Trauma Center

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

As a health system, this is one of the many ways we are always pushing ourselves to provide the best care for our patients.
