OSF trauma center verified by American College of Surgeons

ROCKFORD (WREX) -

The American College of Surgeons has verified the trauma center at Rockford's OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center.

The verification was given by the Verification Review Committee, an ad hoc committee of the ACS's Committee on Trauma, and was voluntarily sought by OSF Saint Anthony. With the verification, the care provided by the trauma program, including departments like Lifeline ambulance and helicopter, is considered as some of the best care in the nation.

OSF Saint Anthony joins Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood as the only two hospitals in Illinois that have achieved ACS trauma center verification.
