Texas Department of State Health Services Designates Children’s Health SM Level IV for its Quality of Care for Trauma Patients in Plano / North Dallas
Children’s Health SM is the eighth-largest pediatric health care provider in the nation and the leading pediatric health care system in North Texas.
The designation as a Level IV trauma center "is a major milestone for Children’s Health and the North Texas community as it demonstrates our ability and commitment to providing crucial, complex emergency services to children in need,” said Lori Vinson, senior director of trauma, disaster preparedness, business continuity and emergency services programs at Children’s Health’s Dallas and Plano / North Dallas campuses. “The children and families in our community deserve the highest level of care and commitment from our medical community, and we are honored to be recognized by the state of Texas for providing such care. This Level IV designation is the culmination of our emergency medical team’s commitment to making life better for children.”
"Children’s Medical Center Plano / North Dallas had to demonstrate that it provides resuscitation, stabilization and assessment of injury victims and either provides treatment or arranges for appropriate transfer to a higher level designated trauma facility. In addition, it must provide ongoing educational opportunities in trauma-related topics for health care professionals and the public as well as implement targeted injury prevention programs."
