Grady’s Marcus Trauma Center Opens

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

 Grady Memorial Hospital’s new Marcus Trauma Center opened recently marking the completion of the renovation and expansion of the Level 1 Trauma Center. Hospital benefactor Bernie Marcus, co-founder of The Home Depot and chairman of The Marcus Foundation, joined health system officials and local dignitaries for a tour of the state of the art facility.
The $7 million dollar Marcus Trauma Center project increases the number of major trauma bays from four to seven and adds eight minor to moderate trauma rooms. In addition, the expansion allows for the treatment of up to 16 patients, two per trauma bay, in a mass casualty situation should the need arise. Grady’s emergency room is on track for nearly 105,000 visits this year, and receives about 3,000 major trauma cases annually.
The Marcus Foundation donated $20 million to Grady in 2009 to improve emergency care to trauma and acute neurological injury victims. The money was used to create the Marcus Stroke and Neuroscience Center, which opened in March of 2010, and the Marcus Trauma Center, which is scheduled to receive its first patient in November.
“Grady is a tremendous asset to this community,” says Bernie Marcus, Chairman, The Marcus Foundation. “It is for the good of all citizens, hospitals and services that Grady remain the premier Level 1 Trauma Center in the region and is able to respond to increasing demand with the most up-to-date facilities and technologically advanced equipment to go with its highly skilled medical personnel.”
