TOWN OF WALLKILL – Orange Regional Medical Center has been verified as a Level II Adult Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons (ACS).
Orange Regional joins 11 other hospitals in New York State that offer this high level of emergent care and is the first Level II Adult Trauma Center in Orange County. The hospital has been working toward this designation for the past seven years.
“We are proud to be the only Level II Adult Trauma Center providing highly specialized medical treatment and capabilities unavailable at any other hospital in Orange County. Level II Adult Trauma designation means patients, and their families, who require highly specialized care due to tragic events, can be treated at Orange Regional instead of being transferred to other facilities farther away,” said Chief Executive Officer Scott Batulis. “This designation reinforces a commitment to provide vital healthcare services to the community.”
“Our Level II Adult Trauma Center features physicians who specialize in orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, radiology and critical care,” said Trauma Program and Acute Care Surgery Medical Director, Dr. Mohammad Siddiqui. “Our surgeons are double Board-certified in Surgery and Surgical Intensive Care and Trauma Fellowship-trained.’
He noted doctors are on-site around the clock every day of the year.
Orange Regional’s Level II Adult Trauma Center is recognized by the New York State Department of Health and works under the guidelines of the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma.
