Trauma Specialists is a network organization that includes physicians who have chosen to specialize in the treatment of the most severely injured trauma patients. We provide administrative and other services to support our network of physicians and the Trauma Program at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. We continue to meet the high standards set forth by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACSCOT). As a result, Legacy Emanuel Medical Center continues to be verified by ACSCOT as a Level 1 Trauma Center.
Trauma Specialists would like to announce Dr. Riyad Karmy-Jones as the new Trauma Clinical Medical Director. For more than 30 years, Dr. William B. Long has served as Medical Director of Trauma Specialists. Dr. Long is now transitioning to Strategic Trauma Medical Director, a new role in which Dr. Long will continue to educate and advocate for the betterment of trauma surgery throughout the state of Oregon.
In his new role, Dr. Karmy-Jones will embrace these strategic initiatives: trauma care excellence, education, and outcome based research, and regional partnership. "I see this role truly as shared leadership alongside Dr. Long. We will both advocate evidence-based research for better patient outcome. We believe Trauma Specialists and Legacy Emanuel have the opportunity to lead the nation at the forefront of trauma care."
