1 min read

In a press release today, it was announced that Saint Elizabeth’s Hospital has opened a Trauma Center, becoming the second in the city along with Bryan West.

The new center is staffed with specialists such as trauma surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, brain and spine surgeons, along with emergency medicine physicians and trauma-trained nurses 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Saint Elizabeth’s Trauma Center is actively accepting patients, and working with EMS agencies like Lincoln Fire & Rescue to balance the load between the two hospitals.

They hope to receive state recognition by April of next year.
