      Permanente’s South Sacramento Medical Center
      has been verified by the
      American College of Surgeons as a Level II trauma center.

      The center got provisional
      verification by the group last year so it could begin operations, but the
      process requires reviewers to evaluate the program after it is up and running.

      Reviewers conducted another
      on-site review in March to evaluate trauma center staff, equipment and other
      resources to make sure they meet national standards. Full verification will be
      in effect until 2013.

      Since opening Aug. 1, the new South Sacramento
      trauma center
      has treated an average of 150 patients per month.

      “We are extremely proud that the
      American College of Surgeons has verified that our program meets their
      stringent standards,” Dr.
      Richard Isaacs
      , physician-in-chief
      at Kaiser Permanente South

      Sacramento, said in a press
      release. “We have an excellent staff here and we are committed to caring for
      some of the area’s most critically injured patients.”

      The South Sacramento hospital
      serves an area from Interstate 5 east to Rancho Cordova, and from Florin Road
      south to the San Joaquin County line.

      The trauma center is a first for
      Kaiser Permanente nationwide.
