Trauma care

We have been designated by the MS Department of Health and the MS Trauma Advisory Committee as a Level III Trauma Center. As a Level III Trauma Center, Garden Park Medical Center serves as the official site for trauma cases. Patients in need of elevated care or with severe injuries including falls, motor vehicle accidents and sports injuries can expect to be treated with rapid care.

What to expect at the ER?

When visiting an emergency department, you’ll notice that the process is a bit different than what you would experience in your doctor’s office. While in our emergency department, here’s what you can expect:


A Triage nurse will assess you upon your arrival and evaluate your chief complaint and vital signs. Your priority of treatment is based on the severity of your illness, as determined by the trauma nurse. You will be seen in order of arrival time, unless you are determined to be seriously ill or unstable. Those patients determined to be emergency will be taken to the treatment area immediately.


The registration clerk will obtain information for your medical record, including billing information. The clerk will also obtain authorization for treatment from your insurance company. All patients will be medically screened, evaluated and stabilized regardless of insurance or ability to pay.

Our commitment to you

It is the policy of Garden Park Medical Center that anyone who comes to our emergency department for examination and/or treatment of any emergency medical condition or for active labor will receive examination, stabilization treatment and/or transfer as determined by the patient’s needs and the capabilities of the hospital. The provision of emergency services and care shall not be based upon, nor affected by, the person’s race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, citizenship, age, sex, pre-existing condition, physical or mental handicap, insurance, status or ability to pay for medical services.
