The Reading Hospital Trauma Center has been accredited for three years by the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation (PTSF) following a day-long survey in June. Accreditation is valid through September 30, 2012. The PTSF does not publicly release results of its surveys throughout Pennsylvania until October.
Designated a Level II Trauma Center, the Hospital's program began in October, 2005, and is the fastest growing Trauma Program in the Commonwealth. It's one of 11 Level II Trauma Centers in the state.
By establishing a Trauma Center in Berks County, The Reading Hospital has provided members of our community with a safe and nationally recognized facility that treats traumatic injuries. It also provides convenience for the patient, and his/her family members, by not having to travel outside the local area for treatment.
The Trauma Center team consists of frontline professionals who triage, treat, and stabilize patients upon their arrival, to surgical, nursing, and ancillary staff who provide ongoing care and support to both patients and their families.
