LIMA — The American College of Surgeons’ committee on trauma has reverified Mercy Health-St. Rita’s as a Level 2 trauma center through May 2021. Hospitals with a Level 2 designation provide 24-hour immediate coverage by general surgeons and other specialties, like orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgery.
“St. Rita’s is proud of our entire team — including physicians, nurse and all support staff — who every day take care of this community,” Dr. Kevin Casey, chief clinical officer for Mercy Health-Lima, stated in a press release. “It is a great privilege that St. Rita’s is entrusted with this responsibility.”
