Hospital to Be First Trauma Center in Williamson County

ROUND ROCK, Texas, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- St. David's Round Rock Medical Center today announced that the hospital will seek Level II Trauma Designation, making it the only trauma center in Williamson County.

"St. David's Round Rock Medical Center is well positioned to become a designated trauma center; the hospital has the busiest emergency department in the City of Round Rock with more than 40,000 patient visits each year," Deborah Ryle, Chief Executive Officer, St. David's Round Rock Medical Center, said. "In more than two decades, we have grown with Williamson County--from recruiting hundreds of specialty physicians to launching the area's first comprehensive cardiovascular program. We are pleased to now add trauma services to the superb level of health care that we can offer residents close to home."

Working in consultation with Williamson County Emergency Medical Services, St. David's Round Rock Medical Center has identified a need for a Level II Trauma Center in Williamson County. In the past 16 months alone, more than 600 patients have required transport from Williamson County to Downtown Austin for trauma-related conditions.

"This is a fantastic opportunity to increase the level of care for the citizens of Williamson County and St. David's Round Rock Medical Center is in the ideal geographic location to become a trauma center because of its excellent access to major thoroughfares," Joe Granberry, Deputy Director, Williamson County Emergency Medical Services, said. "Having Level II trauma will not only decrease the time it takes Williamson County EMS to get a patient to a trauma facility for lifesaving care, but it will also reduce the turnaround time to get the ambulance back in the county so that we may take care of other customers."
