Memorial Community Hospital & Health System Receives Trauma Designation

(Blair, NE) – Memorial Community Hospital & Health System in Blair recently received a Basic Level Trauma Center designation from the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This designation requires certification, and all nurses and providers must obtain additional education and training leading to a higher quality of care.

The Basic Level Trauma Center designation is valid for four years. During the four year period, the DHHS will monitor MCH&HS’s compliance by requiring the facility to report data to the Trauma Registry and participate in regional trauma care performance improvement meetings.

Many MCH&HS staff members were recognized as playing an integral role in receiving this designation, including Dr. Amber Beckenhauer, Trauma Medical Director, Keala Roy, Trauma Nurse Coordinator, Dr. Jim Jordan, past Chief of Staff, Dr. Jon Simonson, present Chief of Staff, the Emergency Department Staff, Bob Copple, MCH&HS President & CEO, Laura Stawniak, Chief Nurse Executive, and Judy Sonderup, Quality & Compliance Lead. The local EMS volunteers and MCH Board of Directors were also commended for their efforts.
