Osceola Regional Medical Center has received official designation as a Level II Trauma Center from the Florida Department of Health. Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) officials completed an in-depth review, including an on-site visits to the hospital in March, before issuing approval.
In May 2015, the hospital successfully completed AHCA’s initial review phase and was granted Provisional Level II Trauma Center status. Since then, the hospital has accepted Level II trauma patients with critical injuries, such as victims of motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries and penetrating wounds. Robert Krieger, CEO of Osceola Regional Medical Center, said: “Meeting our community’s urgent need for specialized trauma care has been a tremendous privilege, and we are thankful for the continued opportunity to serve trauma patients and their families.”
