Moses Cone Level II Trauma Center

Our Level II Trauma Center at Moses Cone Hospital serves the Greater Greensboro community by providing exceptional care to people who have sustained severe injuries. Our trauma center is certified by the state and the American College of Surgeons on an ongoing basis. Patients admitted to our Trauma Center have typically sustained injuries to at least two organ systems, have a single organ injury that falls under the care of a general surgeon or have medical problems that complicate their care.

Dr. Jay WyattTrauma surgeons are specially-trained general surgeons. Our trauma team coordinates a variety of medical specialties, including neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and rehabilitation services for optimal care.

Dr. BednarOur trauma patients are usually admitted from our Emergency Department. A trauma surgeon and the trauma physician assistants (PAs) evaluate the patient and decide on the best course of immediate action. Once the patient is in the hospital, the trauma surgeon and often the trauma PA will see the patient on a daily basis.

Patients then progress from an intensive care unit to either an acute care or “step-down” bed or directly to a regular hospital room. From there, planning begins for discharge either to home, to a rehabilitation service at the hospital or to a skilled nursing facility.
