The Jon Michael Moore Trauma Center Night of Recognition
Honoring the individuals in our communities who help trauma patients along their road to recovery.
On October 9, 2014, we will celebrate our Fifth Annual Jon Michael Moore Trauma Center (JMMTC) Night of Recognition to honor the hard work and perseverance of the many individuals who comprise the trauma system.
Through sponsorship and ticket sales, proceeds from the Night of Recognition provide crucial funds to the School of Medicine’s Department of Surgery to help support the life-saving work of the JMMTC, which provides outreach, teaching, research, and service to your trauma system team, your community, and your families.
At the Jon Michael Moore Trauma Center, we care for more than 3,000 trauma patients annually, from all parts of West Virginia and from Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Some patients arrive directly from the scene of the injury. Others are treated initially at another healthcare facility and then transferred to the JMMTC for specialized trauma care. The care that trauma patients receive, from first responders to post-hospital care, is all part of the statewide trauma system that includes your community emergency medical services, emergency departments, firefighters, police, hospital staff, and the multidisciplinary teams at trauma centers across the state.
Take a moment to peruse our website to learn more about the event and how you can participate in honoring the individuals in your community who provide trauma care.
