When patients from western Nebraska and eastern Wyoming are injured and require immediate trauma care, having access to a Level II Trauma Center can literally be a lifesaver.
As one of just three Nebraska hospitals verified as a Level II Trauma Center and the only one west of Kearney, Regional West Medical Center provides state-of-the-art care to critically injured patients. The program has been a verified Level II Trauma Center since 1996.
The achievement recognizes Regional West’s continuing dedication to providing optimal care for trauma patients throughout western Nebraska and eastern Wyoming.
"As a Level II Trauma Center, we can assure the region's residents that when they come to our hospital, they will receive the best trauma care possible, 24 hours a day, seven days a week," said Rommie Hughes, MD, FACS, trauma surgeon at Regional West Physicians Clinic-Surgery, Vascular Diagnostics, and Medical Director for Regional West's Trauma Services.
