Soin Medical Center in Beavercreek has been recertified a Level III trauma center by the American College of Surgeons.

Verified trauma centers meet the essential criteria that ensure trauma care capability and institutional performance as outlined by the ACS’ Committee on Trauma, according to the Kettering Health Network.

Soin opened its Level III Trauma Center in October 2012.

“We are extremely proud to receive this acknowledgement from the American College of Surgeons,” Dr. Douglas Paul, medical director of Trauma Services for Kettering Health Network, said in a statement. “Residents in Greene, western Clark, eastern Montgomery, and Miami counties have close access to quality emergency care. The emergency and trauma department staff at Soin has a high level of expertise in trauma surgery and critical care.”

Kettering Health Network is a not-for-profit network of eight hospitals, 10 emergency departments, and 120 outpatient facilities serving southwest Ohio. The network’s hospitals are Kettering, Grandview, Sycamore, Southview, Greene Memorial, Soin, Fort Hamilton, and Kettering Behavioral Medicine.
