Three major hospital  systems in northern Ohio are joining to create a trauma-care network in the region to, it is hoped, provide coordinated care.

The Northern Ohio Trauma System (NOTS), originally formed in 2010 as part of a partnership between MetroHealth System and Cleveland Clinic, has now added University Hospitals. The trauma-treatment system is meant to serve a seven-county region in northeastern Ohio, whose major city is Cleveland.

FierceHealthcare reports that “NOTS includes three Level 1 trauma centers, Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital, the emergency department at MetroHealth’s main campus and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, which will accept the most severe patients. Pediatric patients will be sent to University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital’s pediatric trauma unit.Other patients will be sent to one of several Level 2 or Level 3 trauma centers across the three health systems.”
