Simply put, Grady operates one of the nation’s best trauma centers.
Medical fellows and residents from around the world come to Atlanta to learn at our Marcus Trauma Center. So have military special forces medics who need to know how to efficiently handle complex, severe trauma cases. We are one of the nation’s five busiest trauma centers and the busiest in the Southeast. In the last year, we have seen nearly 7,300 trauma patients.
That’s important to patients because our team has the experience to efficiently care for the most challenging acute cases and those that require serious but far less critical care.
Because of our expertise, the most complicated trauma cases are brought to Grady from neighboring states because we have the experience to handle the most complicated cases and the newest medical technology to diagnose and treat the most serious conditions.
Grady is one of a handful of trauma centers staffed by specialists on the faculties of two medical schools – Emory and Morehouse schools of medicine. And, because we have one of the nation’s most active trauma research programs, Grady offers access to some of medicine’s most promising emerging therapies. Our use of pioneering techniques has improved the way trauma care is delivered around the world.
At Grady, every trauma patient also has access to the comprehensive medical services we’ve created for Atlanta over more than 125 years. That means we have the expertise to handle whatever trauma you’ve experienced and whatever complications may arise.
