The University of South Alabama Medical Center has received a gift from the Crampton Charitable Trust to assist with the purchase of equipment for its Surgical Trauma ICU, Trauma Center and Regional Burn Center. The $200,000 gift will be split over two years.
The board members of the Trust awarded the grant after they came to a luncheon at the USA Medical Center and had a tour of the facility which features the area's only Level I Trauma Center with more than 1,700 trauma admissions annually. The Regional Burn Center, which treats more than 600 patients a year, is also unique to the region in that it provides burn care from injury to recovery.
According to Regions Bank Trust Officer Roger Cole, who manages the Crampton Trust, "The Trust was founded in part to support health care and education. It is part of our mission to support these services at the University of South Alabama through gifts, scholarships, and endowments."
"The Crampton Trust has been a true partner of the USA Health System for many years helping us provide both vital and unique services to the Gulf Coast community," says USA Medical Center Administrator Beth Anderson.
The Crampton Charitable Trust was founded by Katherine Crampton Cochrane in honor of her father, noted Mobile physician, Orson L. Crampton. Over the years, the Trust has provided over one million dollars of support to medical facilities at the University of South Alabama.
The USA Medical Center offers the highest level of care to the central Gulf Coast. In addition to the Level I Trauma Center and Regional Burn Center, USAMC offers centers of excellence in stroke care, cardiovascular diseases, and a wide range of acute care services.
