CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) - The Mississippi Trauma Advisory Committee recently recommended the re-designation of Corinth’s hospital as a Level III Trauma Center and Primary Pediatric Center.
However, this requires a Corrective Action Plan be completed. Specifics of the plan are unknown.
Magnolia Regional Health Center is finalizing their response to the plan.
“We have no reason to believe that Magnolia will not be successful in meeting the Corrective Action Plan and keeping its Level III designation,” stated Jim Craig, Director of Health Protection, Mississippi State Department of Health.
Trauma centers are ranked in four levels. Level I is the best and most accommodating for trauma patients.
A Level III center is “expected to provide initial resuscitation of the trauma patient and immediate operative intervention to control hemorrhage and to assure maximal stabilization prior to referral to a higher level of care.”
