Desert Lightning News Digital Edition - August 7, 2020

Hello everyone, and welcome to the August 7th edition of Nellis AFB / Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! In a step toward obtaining Level III Trauma Certification through the American College of Surgeons, the Mike O’Callaghan Military Medical Center is now accepting civilian critical care patients. The potential addition of the facility as a trauma center is seen as a strategic addition to the Southern Nevada Trauma System, which currently only has three trauma centers in place to serve a population of over 2 million citizens in Clark County. “We are building relationships in our local community, securing combat medics and providing lifesaving, critical care services to an underserved population,” said Maj. Taveya T. Ware, 99th MDG Medical Logistics Flight Commander.
