Trauma services set to expand in Montgomery County

Local hospitals work to attain Level II trauma cent

The level of trauma care offered in Montgomery County is improving as two hospitals are working to bring high-end medical services typically found in the Texas Medical Center directly to local residents.

Conroe Regional Medical Center and Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital are each working to improve their trauma designations—which is determined by the American College of Surgeons.

Both hospitals hold Level III designations, which means between 10 to 12 trauma patients per month must be transported to hospitals in the Texas Medical Center in downtown Houston, according to the Montgomery County Hospital District. Once the local hospitals attain Level II designation, they will be certified to offer the same level of trauma care in Montgomery County as Ben Taub and Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center hospitals in Houston. click here for complete story
