Upcoming Programs & Events
We invite former trauma patients to participate in our Trauma Survivor Photo Program. Patients who wish to participate can schedule to have a professional photographer take their portrait, which will be displayed within the hospital as a hopeful reminder for both patients and staff. Learn more
Peer visitation is an opportunity for trauma survivors to share their personal experience in recovering from traumatic injury with someone who is just starting the recovery process. We are currently looking for peer visitor volunteers, regardless of type or level of injury, who have had success in the recovery process. Learn more
