Hurley Medical Center verified as mid-Michigan’s only Level I Trauma Center

FLINT — Hurley Medical Center has long been the leader in trauma care as the northern most Level I Trauma Center in the state.

They have just maintained the only Level 1 Trauma verification and the highest Level II Pediatric Trauma verification in the area.

The Committee on Trauma of the American College of Surgeons examined five separate categories as its team conducted a recent on-site review, concluding Hurley’s trauma center has demonstrated its commitment to providing the highest quality trauma care for all injured patients.

The Farouck N. Obeid Trauma Bay provides immediate response with a highly specialized, in-house team of trauma specialists around the clock, every day of the year.

Hurley provides care to more than 1,500 patients per year, making it one of the highest volume trauma centers in the state. Hurley officials said the hospital attracts only the most dedicated professionals, who, in addition to monthly trauma training, are credentialed in ACLS, TNCC, ATCN, ENPC, and PALS.

The Hurley Children’s Hospital emergency department, the only one of its kind in the region, represents the highest level of pediatric emergency care anywhere with a highly-trained clinical staff specialized in making emergency treatment less scary, said officials.

With a separate entrance and waiting area, the cutting-edge facility features décor and distraction games to keep young children engaged, in addition to specially-sized medical equipment for children’s diagnosis and treatment.

There is no better place to take your family during an emergency. — G.G.
