St. Mark's Hospital - November 01, 2016

Progress continues toward our goal of verification as a Level II Trauma Center under the medical direction of Dr. Kristopher Mitchell, trauma medical director, with a mock site visit planned for February 2017. Our efforts to achieve Level II Trauma Center status will improve the responsiveness of services across the hospital, enhancing our ability to deliver the best care to patients.

Our application as an HCA Center of Excellence for Geriatric Trauma has been accepted targeting patients 65 years of age and older. When implemented in other facilities, it has decreased the time to operating room, reduces morbidity, mortality and hospital length of stay. Our plan is for implementation in 2017-2018.
