The Moses Cone Memorial Hospital has been a designated Level II trauma Center since 2000, and became the first Level II center in North Carolina to attain American College of Surgeons verification in 2012. Being a Level II center simply means that we have shown to the State and the American College of Surgeons that we have a program that can provide excellent care for some of the sickest and most injured patients that come through our Emergency Room.
Who We Help
More than 2000 patients are registered as trauma patients per year. Most of these patients are victims of motor vehicle accidents, assaults, or falls. However, we do get our share of penetrating trauma mostly related to domestic conflicts and a smattering of gang related crime. Fortunately the level of violent crime related trauma is very low (<9%).
How Can We Help You?
We offer a comprehensive service in trauma care with two Central Carolina Surgery (CCS) attendees trained and focused on trauma and critical care. Our panel of CCS trauma surgeons are all credentialed to provide the highest level of care. Physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy are available on a daily basis, and appropriately offered to those that need their services. Physician assistants, a dedicated case manager, and a dedicated social worker help round out our team. We work very hard to make sure that every patient on our service has the best possible outcome.
