Trauma Surgeons and Staff

To help better care for patients in our Trauma Center, Palmetto Health assigns a Trauma Case Manager and Trauma Social Worker to each patient. Our social workers assist trauma patients and families with planning their discharge from the hospital. Discharge planning begins upon admission and one of these team members will make contact with the immediate family within days after admission.
