Great News for Collin County Healthcare but I hope you never need it!

Real Estate Agent with Castle Connections Realty 0517896

The Medical Center of Plano received Level III Trauma Center Designation from the Texas Department of State Health Services last week.  The hospital was required to operate for a year as a trauma center and then go through a two day review process before receiving the designation. 

There are no other hospitals in Collin County with the trauma center designation so this means our residents will be able to get care quicker and not automatically taken to one of the hospitals in Dallas County. 

There are 4 levels of trauma centers in the State of Texas.  A level III designation means that the Medical Center of Plano can provide "Advanced Trauma Facilities".  The highest Level I center can provide "Comprehensive" care, Level II provides "Major" care and Level IV provides "Basic" trauma care.

The Medical Center of Plano is a 427-bed hospital with 1,500 employees and 900 physicians on staff located at the intersection of Coit Road and 15th Street in Plano.

I'm glad I live close but hope like you said to never need it! My daughter broke her wrist in several places last spring falling off her Razor scooter and they were really good to her there.

This is just to have in case you need, but one of those things you hope you never will.
