EFFINGHAM HOSPITAL ER DESIGNATED A TRAUMA CENTER

The Georgia Department of Public Health designated Effingham Health System as a Level IV Trauma Center, one of only four in the state.

What does having a Level IV Trauma Center in Effingham County mean for our community?

Getting the Right Care, at the Right Place, at the Right Time.

A Level IV trauma center provides initial trauma and life-saving care, transferring patients to a higher
level of trauma care only if necessary.

Effingham Health System's Level IV trauma center is a critical component of the overall trauma
system in Southeast Georgia.

We're growing our level of care because we are committed to excellence in emergency medicine and
to connecting our community with advanced care, closer to home.
