Ohio hospital to downgrade trauma center designation level

Beavercreek, Ohio-based Soin Medical Center, part of Kettering (Ohio) Health, will no longer operate as a level 3 trauma center, effective April 13.

The decision was made as Kettering Health continues to evaluate its care sites with the intention of improving care processes for patients, a spokesperson for Kettering Health said in a statement shared with Becker's.

"We will continue to utilize our clinical pathways to treat nearly all conditions and we will help our community's highest acuity patients get to the level 1 or level 2 trauma program that best meets their needs in a streamlined way," the statement said. 

The hospital's emergency department will continue to operate and provide care to patients amid the change.
