Cedars-Sinai Reverified as Level 1 Trauma Center

Cedars-Sinai was recently recertified as a Level 1 Trauma Center by the Verification Review Committee, an ad hoc group of the Committee on Trauma of the American College of Surgeons (ACS).

And while the ACS does not designate trauma centers, it does confirm medical centers who provide the highest quality trauma care.

"This achievement recognizes our dedication to providing exceptional care for the most critically injured patients," said Heidi Hotz, RN, trauma program manager in the Department of Surgery.

Established by the ACS in 1987, the verification program recognizes medical centers who provide the entire spectrum of care for patients across the continuum of trauma care. Verified trauma centers must meet rigorous criteria and pass an on-site review.

"We are proud to receive this designation and honored to serve our community during their most critical time," said Hotz.
