The Trauma Center at Salina Regional Health Center has been re-verified as a Level III Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Trauma centers verified by the ACS must undergo a lengthy review every three years to ensure standards for optimal care of injured patients are being met.
The ACS verification program looks at all aspects of trauma care from the prehospital phase to the rehabilitation process. Verified trauma centers also must remain focused on performance improvement to confirm processes in place lead to the best possible patient outcomes. Salina Regional was first verified as a Level III Trauma Center in 2012. This is the third time the hospital has been verified by the ACS.
