USAMC trauma team recognized
For a second consecutive year, the University of South Alabama Medical Center stroke team earned the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s “Get with the Guidelines — Stroke Gold Plus Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus” award. The medical center’s stroke team had to achieve specific results spanning a two-year period to earn the award.
The award recognizes the hospital’s ability to ensure stroke patients receive appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines developed using the latest scientific evidence.
This accolade is granted to programs that have successfully rendered the quality of care mandated through the use of specific guidelines. To qualify for the award, the hospital had to meet quality measures aimed at the reduction of time between a stroke patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment.
As a state-certified Level 1 trauma and burn center, USA Medical Center serves as the major referral center for southern Alabama, southeast Mississippi and portions of northwest Florida. In 2016 the hospital served patients from 53 counties.
The medical center’s designated trauma team — which includes around-the-clock trauma surgeons, cardiovascular surgeons and neurosurgeons — treats an average of five critically injured patients per day, or more than 1,700 people per year. USA Medical Center is a part of USA Health.
