Our Approach

The emergency department at CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Medical Center - Marshall is designated as a Level IV Trauma Center by the State of Texas.

Our physicians are board certified trauma physicians, and all registered nurses and staff have received specialized training and trauma certifications in their particular fields. Level IV Trauma designation also means that the surgical department physicians all have certifications in advanced trauma life support, all surgical nurses hold their respective trauma certifications, and advanced equipment and technology is available. The trauma system places a patient in a specific track through the entire hospitalization process to ensure a high level of care is provided.
