No one plans for an emergency. That’s why it is good to know that Greater Lansing has health care and emergency departments the public can trust in just about any health crisis.

The Emergency Department at McLaren Greater Lansing has earned a Level III trauma designation from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

McLaren has also incorporated assessment and education programs into the hospital’s functions as part of the certification. The courses include Trauma Nurse Core Curriculum and Advance Trauma Life Support.

“We have developed a comprehensive quality assessment program and continued trauma education program for our personnel to gain Level III trauma certification,” said Dr. Jeff Deppen, trauma medical director. “The goal is to provide increasingly higher quality medical response to the surrounding community.”

The team at the Emergency Department at McLaren Greater Lansing treats countless types of injuries. From heart attacks, strokes, trauma and chest pain to cuts, broken bones, puncture wounds, burns and allergic reactions, staff provides around-the-clock coverage and urgent treatment with a team prepared to care for both minor and severe injuries and illnesses.

The department is staffed by 24-hour emergency medicine physicians, general surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists and radiologists who have demonstrated the team’s ability to quickly stabilize critically injured patients and provide prompt availability of the proper treatment.
