Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) Gainesville’s Level II Trauma Center has been nationally verified by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) for its dedication to not only providing top-notch care to trauma patients but also working to continuously improve its level of care.
“This achievement is something our organization and community should be extremely proud of,” said Jesse Gibson, Trauma Program manager for NGMC. “It is a direct result of the hard work and passion for excellence demonstrated by each member of our team and many other partners across the region.”
NGMC Gainesville was designated as a Level II Trauma Center by the Georgia Department of Public Health’s Emergency Medical Services & Trauma Office in 2013. Now, verification by the ACS confirms NGMC provides the resources necessary to address the trauma needs of all injured patients.
“We are thrilled to be one of only three Level II Trauma Centers in the state of Georgia to receive this ACS verification,” said Angela Gary, executive director of Trauma and Emergency Services for NGMC. “Our growing number of trauma admissions has nearly tripled over the past seven years, which further proves the impact our program has on our community.”
