The University of Texas Medical Branch’s League City Campus reached Advanced Level III trauma facility status. The verification process of trauma levels requires more than a year of preparation to achieve. “You need to have more trauma centers,” League City administrator Christine Wade said. “Otherwise, other hospitals can get overwhelmed.” League City’s growing population will need more trauma care. “The community here and the growth in this area is just unprecedented,” Wade said. “The emergency room has exploded in volume.”
