    HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball Achieves Level III Trauma Designation
    HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball has taken life-saving care to a higher level for our community. Today, May 29, 2019, HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball was officially designated by the State of Texas for Level III Trauma Care. I want to commend our specially trained trauma surgeons, physicians, nurses and supporting hospital staff for their commitment to successfully achieving this esteemed status.
    Level III trauma centers provide comprehensive care, offering 24-hour availability of acute services by emergency medicine physicians and the prompt availability of general surgeons and anesthesiologists. Studies have shown the chance of recovery is greatly increased when a severely injured patient receives care at a designated trauma center. It is with pride that HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball’s trauma program is able to fulfill our community’s need for this essential enhanced level of emergency service. 
    The Level III trauma designation came after extensive criteria were met, site reviews, and evaluations were carried out. Becoming a trauma center is extremely difficult, and our staff’s dedication to it is already resulting in more lives being saved in Tomball and surrounding areas.
    Please join me in offering my heartfelt thanks to our exceptional team members who have dedicated their lives to saving our community’s.
     
    Sincerely,
    Eric Evans
