CUMC Regains Level I Trauma Center Designation

Article Date: Feb 23, 2015

“It’ll be business as usual for us,” said Rick Benson, EMS director for Council Bluffs, noting his department still took trauma patients to Creighton Medical.

“We still went to Creighton. They were still a self-designated trauma center. They still had everything they had today, they didn’t forget how to take care of patients,” he said. “So we still took ‘em there. We just tried to stay out of the political war.”
