Northern Ohio Trauma System (NOTS) expands network
Wednesday, February 08, 2017
CLEVELAND – Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth and University Hospitals have joined together to create a new Northern Ohio Trauma System (NOTS), which will provide coordinated trauma care to patients throughout Cuyahoga County and the seven-county Northeast Ohio region.
As part of this enhanced trauma network, University Hospitals is adding its trauma expertise to NOTS. The NOTS network was originally formed in 2010 between MetroHealth and Cleveland Clinic, and NOTS assisted the City of Cleveland public safety forces to get the right patient to the right place at the right time for their care.
Building on the collaboration among Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth and University Hospitals during recent public health events including Flu and Ebola responses and the Republican National Convention preparation, the three health systems with the full support of Cleveland Mayor, Frank G. Jackson, strengthened their work together to enhance trauma service coordination across the region.
