Memorial’s Emergency Department was recently surveyed by a national trauma inspector. We are very pleased to report that the surveyor recommended us for a Level 4 Trauma designation in our ER. His report is currently with the New Mexico Secretary of Health and she will send the official letter of designation. Congratulations to Memorial’s ER Team, particularly the Team Lead, Rachel Miller, RN, all of whom worked diligently to achieve our status as a Trauma Center. This allows patients with higher acuity illness and injuries to be treated here rather than having to be transported to El Paso or elsewhere. We are proud to offer a higher level of care to keep our community healthier right here at home.
