Surgical Services offered at MSLC

Level III Trauma Center:

The Trauma Center at Montefiore St. Luke's Cornwall is a verified Level III Trauma Center through 2019 by the Verification Review Committee (VRC), an ad hoc committee of the Committee on Trauma (COT) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). This achievement recognizes our trauma center’s dedication to providing optimal care for injured patients.

The MSLC Trauma Program officially began in May 2014, allowing the hospital to operate provisionally as an Area Trauma Center. Since that time, the MSLC trauma team has treated more than 1,000 patients, implementing policies and procedures designed to enhance the care provided to patients in need of trauma services.

MSLC is proud to partner with Surgical Affiliates Management Group (SAMGI) in the management of our Trauma surgeons, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. This dynamic team assists in the management of trauma patients in all areas of the hospital during a patients stay. The Trauma Program has bolstered the Kaplan Family Center for Emergency Medicine and the Emergency Department team as it continues to provide comprehensive, high-quality emergent care to patients and their families throughout the community.

Verified trauma centers must meet the essential criteria that ensure trauma care capability and institutional performance, as outlined by the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma.

The MSLC Level III Trauma Center provides a multitude of services both within the walls of the hospital and in the community including community education to prevent trauma injuries such as "Not One More"-Teen Traffic Safety Program and a Falls Prevention Program.

The Consultation/Verification Program for Hospitals promotes the development of trauma centers in which participants provide not only the hospital resources necessary for trauma care, but also the entire spectrum of care to address the needs of all injured patients. This spectrum encompasses the prehospital phase through the rehabilitation process.

HG General Surgery Award ImageMontefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall is among the top 10% in the nation—as measured by volume-weighted performance—according to the 2017 evaluation from Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. The Healthgrades award comes on the heels of several additions to MSLC’s surgical services during the last two years. The American College of Surgeons (ACS), a nationally recognized organization for setting standards in surgical quality and patient safety, verified MSLC’s Trauma Program with a Level III Trauma Center Designation in 2017 and accredited the hospital’s Bariatric program also in 2017. Each program was found to meet the requirements set forth by the ACS for these specialties and were granted a three-year accreditation. As we continue to integrate into the Montefiore Health System , the breadth of services provide at Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall will continue to expand in scope.
