At the Rees-Jones Trauma Center we don’t just treat injuries.

We educate the patient on choices that may lead to healthier living and a quicker return to their active lifestyle.
Parkland’s trauma center also understands that a patient’s family and loved ones are critical to recovery after a traumatic event. That is why we strive to get families involved as part of our care team. It is important that they are involved in a patient’s care decisions. And we understand the stress that family members can feel themselves after seeing a loved one put in a life-threatening situation. That is why we offer services for the patient’s family such as support groups to help them understand and come to terms with their loved one’s recovery.
