MRMC earns provisional designation as Level IV Trauma Center


COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) has been granted provisional designation as a Level IV Trauma Center by the Tennessee Department of Health after a recent onsite review.

All trauma designations begin with a provisional status for one year. MRMC will submit a report and undergo another site visit after one year. The results will be reviewed by the Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities, and if approved, the medical center will be granted a three-year designation as a Level IV Trauma Center.

“This designation reaffirms our commitment to providing exceptional emergency care to residents throughout southern Middle Tennessee,” said Maury Regional Health CEO Martin Chaney, MD. “It wouldn’t be possible without the exceptional care being provided by our intensive care and emergency teams.”

The Tennessee State Trauma Center Site Visit Team conducted a provisional site visit at MRMC on Oct. 12 to ensure compliance with all criteria required for state provisional designation as a Level IV Trauma Center. The site visit included interviews with key personnel, chart reviews, trauma activation criteria and reviews of various facility and staff resources, capabilities and services.

Trauma Center designation is designed to identify hospitals that are committed to providing a given level of care for trauma patients. For more information about the state of Tennessee’s trauma care system plan, visit
