Ready to serve the president, and the community
HCMC is a safety-net hospital that takes patients regardless of their ability to pay. It’s also one of two designated facilities when a U.S. president is in town. It has adult and pediatric Level 1 trauma center designations, meaning it’s able to provide an array of critical care around the clock.
Dr. Jon Pryor, HCMC’s chief executive officer, said the upgrade was important to the hospital’s mission. “We’re committed to providing state-of-the-art, patient- and family-friendly facilities across our system, and as a leader in trauma and critical care in the region, our intensive-care units were a top priority for renovation,” he said. “We’ve now brought all of our ICUs [medical, surgical and pediatric] up to a new standard — which is wonderful for the entire community.”
