Advanced trauma facility offers 24-hour specialty care
Frisco, TX – Medical City Frisco has been officially designated as a Level III Trauma Center by the Texas Department of State Health Services. This recognizes the hospital as an advanced trauma facility providing 24-hour, immediate emergency care for a variety of needs.
“We have been operating at this higher level for more than a year,” says Medical City Frisco CEO Patrick Rohan. “This accomplishment reflects our ongoing investment in and commitment to providing excellent emergency and trauma services for our community. Designation as a Level III Trauma Center is another reason Medical City Frisco is the destination of choice for healthcare excellence in Frisco.”
The Level III Trauma designation has an extensive survey process, following standards set by the American College of Surgeons. It requires a demonstrated ability to provide prompt assessment, resuscitation, emergency operations, intensive care and stabilization of injured patients. Medical City Frisco’s comprehensive trauma care, for both adults and children, includes:
- 24-hour, in-house coverage by ER physicians and anesthesiology, plus rapid availability of surgical specialists including general, neuro, orthopedic and trauma.
- Continuing education for nursing and trauma teams.
- An active community outreach program and coordination of prevention efforts.
Medical City Frisco’s emergency department has been honored the last two years with parent company HCA Healthcare’s prestigious Unit of Distinction Award for Excellence in Emergency Nursing, placing the Frisco facility in the top 5% of 186 hospitals nationwide.
Medical City Frisco patients also have access to a full spectrum of resources through Medical City Healthcare, which has a long history of investing in the North Texas community to effect positive change. This includes a significant capital investment initiative of more than $1.7 billion spent or committed over five years for expansion and improvements to existing hospitals, new services, upgraded technology and construction of new facilities. Medical City Frisco is currently undergoing a $91 million expansion to add an additional 36 beds in a new patient tower. The project is expected to be complete in December 2022.
