CCMH Granted Area Trauma Hospital Designation

Campbell County Memorial Hospital, (CCMH) has received designation as an Area Trauma Hospital by the Wyoming Trauma Program, Wyoming Department of Health. The Trauma Site Review was conducted April 20, 2012, and the designation was awarded for a three year period.

The goal of Wyoming’s statewide trauma system is to reduce injury, disability and death for all ages. Trauma is the leading cause of death for those between the ages 1-44. The trauma program is housed in the Department of Health's Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS).

An Area Trauma Hospital is an acute care facility with the commitment, medical staff, personnel and specialty training necessary to provide primary care for the trauma patient. The Trauma Program has an established Trauma Team to respond to trauma patients and consists of: general and orthopedic surgery, anesthesiology, emergency physicians, registered nurses, laboratory technicians, pre-hospital care providers (EMS), radiology technicians, respiratory therapists and social services/pastoral care.

The Wyoming legislature passed legislation enabling the development of a statewide trauma system in 1993. The Area Trauma Hospital designation demonstrates the organization’s commitment to quality patient care for the community and citizens of Wyoming.
