DENISON, Tex. ― Texoma Medical Center has been recognized by the State Department of Health Services as a Level 3 Trauma Center.
As a Level 3 facility, TMC has sufficient staff, equipment, and rehabilitative services to care for patients with extensive injuries.
Officials say the designation will allow them to care for patients who otherwise would have to go to Oklahoma City or Dallas for treatment.
"We are able to rapidly evaluate all of our patients care for the ones definitively that we can care for here which is about 95% and transfer the rest to a Level 1 or Level 2 Trauma Center that has additional capacity and capability for caring for these severely injured patients," trauma medical director Mark Dickson said.
TMC is one of 41 hospitals in Texas to be awarded this designation.

Researchers see promise in two novel therapies
By Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A South African sign-language interpreter accused of miming nonsense as world leaders paid tribute to Nelson Mandela defended himself as a "champion" signer on Thursday but said he suffered a schizophrenic episode during the event. The interpreter, 34-year-old Thamsanqa Jantjie, told Johannesburg's Star newspaper he started hearing voices and hallucinating while on stage, resulting in gestures that made no sense to outraged deaf people around the world. The government admitted Jantjie was not a professional interpreter but played down security concerns at his sharing the podium with world leaders including U.S. President Barack Obama at the memorial on Tuesday. We accept all that." After the memorial, South Africa's leading deaf association denounced him as a fake, making up gestures to be put into the mouths of Obama and his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma.
