Trauma is a sudden, life-threatening injury that can happen to anyone at any time. As the only Level II Trauma Center in the Permian Basin, Medical Center Hospital is the leading provider of emergency and trauma care in a 38,000 square mile 17 county area. Designation as a Level II Trauma Center verifies that MCH has the resources to deal with severely injured patients on a round the clock basis. In order to receive this designation, a hospital must meet rigorous criteria in the areas of emergency department facilities, operating room services and prompt availability of medical care, as defined by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma and the State of Texas.
