Fort Worth, TX-based JPS looks at becoming highest-level trauma center

Fort Worth Star-Telegram, February 13, 2009
Fort Worth, TX-based John Peter Smith Hospital is seeking approval to become a Level 1 trauma center, the highest-level of accreditation that would allow the most serious injuries and illnesses to be treated at the hospital. JPS trauma services are currently at Level 2, and JPS would need to add the ability to perform cardiac bypass surgery, among other things. The process to become a Level 1 trauma center could take about a year.
