Natividad Trauma Center celebrates one year

Natividad Medical Center in Salinas is celebrating one year of being the area’s only level-two trauma center. The hospital received the designation last January 5th after a two-and-a-half year effort by Natividad to designate a local hospital as a trauma center. Having the designation means the emergency room is more prepared to handle traumatic injuries. Before this one was opened, the closest trauma center was in San Jose.
