Stevens Community Medical Center (SCMC) will be running a Did you Know article once a month sharing on or our website and social handles. This month’s snippet of knowledge is about SCMC being a Critical Access, Acute Stroke Ready, and Level 4 Trauma facility.
The goal of the trauma system is to decrease injured patients’ time to care by making sure their medical needs are appropriately matched with hospital resources. With the designation of Stevens Community Medical Center as a level 4 trauma hospital, we are getting closer to our goal of ensuring that seriously injured Minnesotans have access to an organized system of trauma care wherever they are in the state. SCMC is also designated as an Acute Stroke Ready Hospital (ASRH) through the Minnesota Department of Health Stroke System. The addition of Telestroke availability has assured that a patient can connect with a neurologist in real-time improving our community health with enhanced care for stroke patients. More info can bee found on our Emergency Medicine page of the SCMC website. When you need care SCMC is here for you.
