November 04, 2019
Becomes 1st Iowa Level III trauma center to be verified by ACS
CHI Health Mercy Council Bluffs has successfully been verified as a Level III Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Certification reviews by the ACS are extremely thorough, rigorous and difficult to attain.
Achieving verification means Mercy has voluntarily met criteria that improves the standard of trauma care as outlined by an ACS committee. Three reviewers visited Mercy last month to look over every aspect of the trauma program and to determine whether the hospital met ACS standards.
Mercy’s trauma program serves southwest Iowa.
