• The Minnesota Department of Health recently designated Lake City Medical Center - Mayo Health System as a level 4 trauma hospital.
The designation allows LCMC to provide emergency care to patients who sustain serious injuries. Depending on the severity of the injuries, the patient will either be treated in Lake City or stabilized and transferred to a more specialized hospital.
"In a trauma situation, the time between a serious injury and receiving care is critical in terms of survival," said Dr. Steven Adamson said in a company press release. He is a family medicine physician and the trauma program medical adviser at LCMC
"Meeting and maintaining a trauma hospital designation enhances the quality of care we provide," he said.
LCMC and staff voluntarily participated in an intense designation process, thus becoming part of Minnesota's statewide trauma system. The process included an outside review of the hospital's resources and capabilities to care for trauma patients.
"We pursued this designation because we're committed to meeting the needs of our patients and our community," Adamson said. "We recognize we have a vital role in the care and management of trauma patients."
