New Violence Recovery Program Manager Reaches Trauma Patients

David Crump is UChicago Medicine’s first violence recovery program manager, selected by Trauma Director Selwyn Rogers, MD, MPH, to handle outreach to the commu­nity and work inside the Medical Center to improve continuity of care for victims and families of violence.

Rogers said Crump’s work with various youth development organizations will bring value to the Medical Center’s strategic plan to address violence on the streets of Chicago.

Our journey to adult trauma care

After almost three decades, the University of Chicago Medicine will provide adult trauma services for the communities on the South Side of Chicago beginning in May. With a commitment to excellence in patient care, knowledge generation, and education, the University of Chicago Medicine Trauma Center will engage our communities to not only meet the clinical needs of adults affected by falls, motor vehicle collisions or violence but also address prevention and holistic recovery. I am humbled to lead this effort that will require broad partnerships inside and outside the hospital’s walls to provide the highest quality of care to all patients. 

Q&A with new trauma director

As the newly announced founding director of the University of Chicago Medicine’s new Level 1 adult trauma center, Selwyn Rogers, Jr, MD, MPH, reflected on his mission to provide trauma care for victims of violence and how he plans to approach his work. Slated to open early 2018, the trauma center would be the South Side’s only facility of its kind.
