Union Health

Terre Haute, IN--Union Hospital’s trauma center has been verified as a Level III Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons (ACS). As the first verified trauma center in the Terre Haute area, this achievement recognizes Union Hospital’s dedication to providing optimal care for injured patients.

Steve Holman, CEO of Union Health is proud of the work that went into the verification. “This major milestone in Union Hospital’s history comes as a result of dedicated effort and planning that stretches back to mid-July of 2011. Due to countless hours of work by a team dedicated to improving patient care within our community, we are celebrating this great achievement today.”

As a verified trauma center, the care extends past the Emergency Department and into other parts of the hospital.  “The quality of care at every point is monitored. The surgical response, the operating room response, the blood bank resources, the ICU, post-op follow up. Everything is being specifically reviewed as part of the trauma service,” shared Dr. Mark Lynch, Trauma Medical Director.
