Trauma and Emergency Services Fund
The purpose of The Bronson Trauma and Emergency Services Fund is to support the comprehensive, high quality care for patients in need of Emergency Medical services. This includes but is not limited to:
- New technologies
- Education for nurses, providers, and other clinicians
- Facilities development
- Innovative models of care including Pediatric Child Life Specialists
The Bronson Trauma and Emergency Services Fund was created by an anonymous employee donor to honor the men and women who serve as healthcare professionals and provide emergency care to patients in southwest Michigan.
The evolution of emergency medicine in southwest Michigan has numerous milestones including the formation of Southwestern Michigan Emergency Services, P.C., the evolution of EMS as first responders, advancements in Trauma Surgery, establishment of an Emergency Medicine Residency program, and the creation of West Michigan AirCare, to name a few. In 1989, Bronson became verified as a Level I Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Bronson was the first Level I Trauma Center in southwest Michigan.
Dr. James De Moss is the President of Southwestern Michigan Emergency Services, which provides emergency medical physicians and advanced practice providers throughout Bronson. He is looking forward to seeing how the fund can be used to enhance the already highly-skilled team.
“It could be used for nursing scholarships, to strengthen our support staff or any number of services,” says De Moss. “I’m really happy to see the creation of this fund and what new resources it will bring.”
