The verification at the level one trauma center by the American College of Surgeons is the highest national award that a trauma center can receive. We have dedicated trauma resuscitation rooms that have state of the art equipment and resources so that we can take care of any type of trauma patient that may come through our doors. And if the patient is transported to a level one trauma center, were we have the staff and resources immediately available, their chances of survival have increased. At Methodist and Blank Children’s Hospital, we are committed to maintaining our leadership role in pursuing excellence in trauma throughout the state of Iowa. I’m Sherry Olson, and I am the trauma program manager for UnityPoint – Des Moines.
