Trinity Hospital of Augusta Designated Level III Trauma Center

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

Trinity Hospital of Augusta has been designated as a Level III Trauma Center by the Georgia Department of Community Health.

This designation will allow Trinity Hospital to provide trauma care to patients in our community, in addition to Georgia Regents Medical Center, which is the only facility designated as a Level I Trauma Center in the CSRA.

"Through our collaboration with Georgia Regents Medical Center, we felt that becoming designated as a Level III Trauma Center would improve access for patients in our community with less acute trauma injuries. It is our hope that other hospitals will also seek such designation to improve the trauma network in the state of Georgia," commented Jason Studley, Trinity Hospital President/CEO.

A designated Level III Trauma Center demonstrates the ability to provide prompt assessment, resuscitation and stabilization of acutely injured patients through a site team inspection, and documented policies and continual monitoring of performance improvement measures.

Trinity's Emergency Department is staffed 24 hours a day with board certified emergency physicians and critical care Registered Nurses trained to handle patients of all ages and all types of emergency situations.

"Our Emergency Department staff, physicians and administration are elated to be able to provide this level of service to our patients. We certainly believe this reinforces our efforts to meet our community's highest standards," concluded Studley.
