Methodist Charlton named first trauma center in southern Dallas

The Texas Department of State Health Services designated Dallas-based Methodist Charlton Medical Center as a Level III advanced trauma facility, increasing access to critical care for patients in Southern Dallas.

Methodist Charlton is part of Methodist Health System, a 10-hospital system based in Dallas, and contains the only trauma center in the city's southern sector.

The trauma center will provide a specially trained trauma team and necessary equipment to treat patients with critical injuries, including falls, car crashes and gunshot wounds.

"Becoming a designated trauma facility recognizes the quality care that we at Methodist Charlton have dedicated to the community in which we serve," said Jeffrey Butterfield, MD, medical director of the hospital's emergency department, in a press release. "This designation brings an increased focus on trauma care. These designations are not handed out. They are earned. We are proud of our outstanding trauma team for earning this."
