Memorial Hospital now a Level III Certified Trauma Center

Jasper (NNDC):

Memorial Hospital continues to up it’s Game with newly bestowed level III Trauma Center.

Memorial Hospital and Healthcare Center has now been certified a  Level III Trauma Center.  The verification from the American College of Surgeons, comes after years of work by hospital staff.  Verified trauma centers must meet the essential criteria that ensure trauma care capability and institutional performance, as outlined by the American College of Surgeons’ Committee on Trauma.

This means our local hospital will be able to treat more serious cases, transferring fewer to other facilities outside the area.  There are only 13 Level III Trauma Centers in Indiana and Memorial now is able to fill a void that existed between Bloomington and Evansville.  This is an amazing feat for the County and our local hospital system.

Please check back tomorrow for further updates and interviews.
