Despite Level 1 Trauma Center at Memorial, St. Johns Could Seek Designation

The SIU School of Medicine says it will only provide physicians to staff a Level 1 trauma center at Memorial Medical Center… not at St. John’s.


The two hospitals have alternated that designation for years… but now SIU says it wants to stick with just one, and thinks Memorial provides a better environment for that emergency treatment.


The State Journal-Register reports St. John’s could still seek to remain a Level 1 center… putting that designation at both hospitals simultaneously.


But it could only do so if it can find enough physicians from other places to staff the trauma center.
