Our journey to adult trauma care

After almost three decades, the University of Chicago Medicine will provide adult trauma services for the communities on the South Side of Chicago beginning in May. With a commitment to excellence in patient care, knowledge generation, and education, the University of Chicago Medicine Trauma Center will engage our communities to not only meet the clinical needs of adults affected by falls, motor vehicle collisions or violence but also address prevention and holistic recovery. I am humbled to lead this effort that will require broad partnerships inside and outside the hospital’s walls to provide the highest quality of care to all patients.
