George C. Grape Community Hospital Recognized as the 2019 Level IV Trauma Care Facility of the Year
On August 28th, members of George C. Grape Community Hospital's Trauma Team were presented with the 2019 Level IV Trauma Care Facility of the Year award during the State of Iowa Trauma Conference held in Des Moines, IA. There were over 600 attendees at the conference with special interest in Trauma, EMS, and Preparedness.
Grape Hospital was competing against all other Level IV program's (95 programs) in the State of Iowa and has worked very hard to implement and maintain a quality-level trauma department not only in their community, but for all other surrounding communities.
During the award presentation, Sarah Reisetter, Deputy Director of the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), explained that "Grape Hospital exemplifies the meaning of hard work and determination when it comes to their trauma program. Through Grape's efforts to build their local trauma system, Advanced Practitioner, David Owen, Trauma Program Coordinator and Jeremy Hodges, EMS Director, have had several success stories accumulate over the past year. From a local mass casualty incident, to flooding in the spring, Grape Hospital has shown outstanding resolve and grit to do the right thing for their community and continue to build their local system to improve care for all."
Grape Hospital and its Trauma Leaders were commended on their exemplary efforts to be on the leading edge of system development, meaningful use of the trauma registry, injury prevention, and community outreach in the State of Iowa. "What an honor it was to be on stage with Jeremy and Dave, and to hear the kind words and accolades that were given to our hospital from across the State", explains Mike O'Neal, CEO. "It is our mission here at George C. Grape Community Hospital to promote the health of our region by being the leader of high quality, compassionate healthcare close to home, and it is with recognitions such as this, that we will continue to do so."
