St. Luke's is Recertified as Level II Trauma Center
St. Luke's has received notice of its recertification as a Level II Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons.
The certification, which verifies the hospital's trauma center status through May 2015, means that St. Luke's has demonstrated its commitment to providing the highest quality trauma care for all injured patients.
Dr. Mark Monte, St. Luke's Trauma Director, said: "St. Luke's Hospital is proud to once again have been re-verified as a Level II Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons. The commitment by St. Luke's to care for injured individuals in our region, day or night, 365 days a year, with the finest staff and most advanced technology, reflects a crucial part of our mission to put the patient above all else."
Recertification is only verified after an on-site review by a team of experienced site reviewers.
St. Luke's was first verified as a Level II Trauma Center in 1990 by the American College of Surgeons. It is part of Minnesota's statewide trauma system, a system which increases a trauma patient's chances of survival regardless of proximity to an urban trauma hospital.
