As a result of its dedication to quality care and performance improvement program, Northeast Georgia Medical Center Gainesville’s Level II trauma center received national verification by the American College of Surgeons. Jesse Gibson, the hospital’s trauma program manager, said the facility was first designated as a Level II trauma center by the Georgia Department of Public Health’s Emergency Medical Services & Trauma Office in 2013. While the state-level verification was a meaningful first step in the trauma center’s journey, Gibson said the recent national verification confirms the facility’s ability to provide the necessary resources to address the trauma needs of injured patients. “People should just feel comfortable knowing that Northeast Georgia Medical Center has put in the resources needed to be the best trauma center we can be,” Gibson said. “This verification proves we’re meeting national standards.”
