Trauma work team leaders, working with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), have established the milestones that will lead to approval of the University of Chicago Medical
Center (UCMC) as a Level I adult Trauma Center next year. Here’s the timeline.
Progress continues on the construction of the new Emergency Department, which is set to open next January. The team is pouring concrete, and the ED staff continues to work on improvements for both discharged and admitted patients. Soon after the new Emergency Department opens, the Medical Center will launch adult trauma services in spring 2018.
