Highlighting the courage and dedication of first responders and medical professionals who help patients survive after a traumatic injury, the University of South Alabama Medical Center will host A Night Honoring Heroes. The gala will include a reception, dinner and inspiring video presentations of two patients who suffered traumatic injuries and those who cared for them. University of South Alabama Foundation is the title sponsor for the inaugural event, which will benefit USA Medical Center's Level 1 Trauma Center.
USA Medical Center holds a unique role as the region's only Level 1 Trauma Center, the epicenter of the highest level of care when the unexpected happens. USA Medical Center is the only area hospital that has an in-house, around-the-clock trauma team, which includes specialized surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, respiratory therapists and others. Working together, they utilize the resources of all medical specialties for a patient's benefit, greatly improving the chance of survival.
USA Medical Center also serves as a key component for economic development efforts in the region. Without its Level 1 Trauma Center and the Arnold Luterman Regional Burn Center, the area would not be able to support existing large manufacturing or chemical companies or attract new ones.
