When you give, it can help provide timely trauma care that transforms a grim prognosis into a story of triumph.
Meg Scharzman, whose story we shared this fall wasn’t expected to survive after she had a devastating bicycle accident in Berkeley. But, thanks to first responders and the trauma team at Alameda Health System’s (AHS’s) Highland Hospital, Meg will be enjoying the holiday season at home with her husband and young son, Oliver.
Widely known for our capacity to treat the most traumatic and life-threatening emergencies like Meg’s, we’re pleased to announce that Highland Hospital was recently recognized by the American College of Surgeons as a Level 1 adult Trauma Center—the only one in the East Bay!
What does Highland’s Level 1 Trauma Center mean to you and other East Bay residents?
Highland is just one facility in AHS’s comprehensive network of hospitals and clinics spanning Alameda County. Our health system is a lifeline in an emergency, a skilled medical provider for those at every life stage, a safety net for anyone that needs it and the vital heartbeat for so many in our East Bay community.
Make a gift today and help us fulfill the AHS mission of Caring, Healing, Teaching, Serving All!
