Corning, N.Y., Aug. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Officials at The Guthrie Clinic announced today that Guthrie Corning Hospital has been designated a Provisional Level III Adult Trauma Center by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), effective August 28, 2023.

“Guthrie Corning Hospital now joins Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital and Guthrie Troy Community Hospital as designated/accredited trauma centers,” said Dr. Edmund Sabanegh, President and CEO of The Guthrie Clinic. “With this new designation for Corning Hospital, multiple rural communities in our 12-county region will benefit from having access to trauma care close to home when they need it most.”

The Level III designation requires hospitals to have a 24-hour trauma team in place, and emergency medical supplies and specialized equipment designed specifically for treating traumatic injuries. A Level III Trauma Center increases the level of care available to those facing medical emergencies and provides critical support in emergency situations. Provisional status is granted to new trauma programs in New York until they are verified by the American College of Surgeons.

Guthrie’s Robert Packer Hospital is an accredited Level I Trauma Center and Guthrie Troy Community Hospital is an accredited Level IV Trauma Center by the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation.

“Becoming a Level III Trauma Center reaffirms Guthrie’s commitment to our community’s wellbeing,” said Dr. Anne Rizzo, Trauma Medical Director. “This designation puts Guthrie at the forefront of health care systems in rural settings and solidifies our dedication to providing reliable and accessible emergency services for our patients.”

“I am profoundly grateful to the caregivers who played a vital role in obtaining Level III designation,” said Dr. Sabanegh. “Their compassion, skill, and guidance are a testament to Guthrie’s legacy of providing high-quality trauma care to those in need. We remain unwavering in our commitment to keep care local for our communities.”
