CHI St. Alexius Health Bismarck Verified as Level II Trauma Center

CHI St. Alexius Health Bismarck Emergency & Trauma Center has been verified again for an additional three years as a Level II Trauma Center by the Verification Review Committee (VRC), an ad hoc committee of the Committee on Trauma (COT) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). CHI St. Alexius Emergency & Trauma Center has been a Level II Trauma Center since 1993, becoming the first in the region to bring the highest quality of trauma care to patients.

Verified trauma centers must meet the essential criteria that ensure trauma care capability and institutional performance, as outlined by the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma in its current Resources for Optimal Care of the Injured Patient manual. “Trauma surgeons must be bedside for trauma code cases within fifteen minutes of their notification, and subspecialists like neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons arrive within thirty minutes. In many instances, they arrive at the trauma center before the patient,” states Derek Kane, MD, medical director of the trauma program at CHI St. Alexius Health.
