Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center — Reverification Awarded from ACS
Results confirmed Nationwide Children’s Hospital Trauma Program has successfully completed reverification as a level 1 pediatric trauma center, now celebrating their 25th year with such distinction. In late 2015, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) visited Nationwide Children’s, resulting in an extremely positive review for Trauma Center status reverification. The amount of work that goes into a visit like this is commendable and includes more than 10 months of gathering documentation to prepare for this visit, intense review of patient care, research, quality and education, and spans across more than 100 standards set forth by ACS. Congratulations to the trauma program and more than 500 Nationwide Children’s trauma team members.
