Ask the Times: New hospital in Braselton doesnt have trauma status
Mike Davidson of Braselton prepares to leave the emergency room at Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton on Wednesday morning after treatment. Davidson was one of the first patients to use the new hospital on its first day of operation.
Is the new Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton hospital a Level II trauma center like the one in Gainesville? No, it isn’t, according to Sean Couch, manager of public relations and marketing at Northeast Georgia Health System. Patients who need interventional heart care, obstetrics patients and those with major trauma will still need to be taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center’s main campus in Gainesville.
