As the first verified trauma center in the Terre Haute area, this achievement recognizes Union Hospital’s dedication to providing optimal care for injured patients.
Steve Holman, CEO of Union Health is proud of the work that went into the verification. “This major milestone in Union Hospital’s history comes as a result of dedicated effort and planning that stretches back to mid-July of 2011. Due to countless hours of work by a team dedicated to improving patient care within our community, we are celebrating this great achievement today.”

The surgical response, the operating room response, the blood bank resources, the ICU, post-op follow up. Everything is being specifically reviewed as part of the trauma service,” shared Dr. Mark Lynch, Trauma Medical Director.

The collaboration involves physician staffing of Union Hospital’s emergency department by IU Health – which begins on February 14, 2017.

According to Steve Holman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Union Health and Union Hospital, “Union Hospital’s mission is to provide compassionate care of the highest quality to our community. This collaboration with IU Health will further our mission by ensuring that patients in our emergency departments receive the best care possible.” Holman adds, “Our emergency department has worked very collaboratively with IU Health for the care of trauma patients for years, this enhancement of that emergency department relationship ensures an even stronger continuity of care between the two organizations for our patients.”
