Hospitals celebrate 25 years of trauma care

CRYSTAL LAKE – Centegra Hospital-McHenry and Centegra Hospital-Woodstock are celebrating 25 years of trauma care in McHenry County. Established as Level II trauma centers in 1988, the hospitals provide trauma care 24 hours a day.

“As the only trauma centers in McHenry County, our hospitals have additional resources and equipment to care for severely injured trauma patients,” said Jeff Hummel, director of patient care services with Centegra Hospital-Woodstock. “Our physicians, nurses and other experienced team members continue to advance the way we provide emergency care to the people of our region.”

Each year, Centegra Hospital-McHenry sees more than 750 trauma patients and Centegra Hospital-Woodstock sees more than 600 trauma patients. These numbers do not include all the patients who go home from the emergency departments after their traumatic events.
