Johnson County Hospital has successfully passed the state designation process to be an official Basic Trauma Center for the Nebraska Statewide Trauma System.
The Statewide Trauma System is a network of healthcare facilities across Nebraska that helps provide access to trauma care in every part of the state, rural or urban.
Participating facilities must meet state requirements to be designated as a trauma center. This includes having required equipment and training for physicians, nurses, mid-level practitioners and pre-hospital providers. Facilities designated as part of the Statewide Trauma System also have access to quality improvement programs, statewide and regional protocols for standardized patient care, and access to the Nebraska Trauma Registry.
This designation is just one more way that Johnson County Hospital provides high-quality healthcare to the residents of Johnson County and the surrounding communities.
