Trauma does not only happen to one individual. Trauma happens to all who love that particular individual. This is why the Trauma Team at Inova Trauma Center is so extraordinary. They work tirelessly to save the lives of individuals whose lives unexpectedly changed in a matter of seconds. And the team does this while comforting and informing loved ones at a time of unimaginable stress and despair. Compassionate and expert care is truly a team effort. Patients and loved ones have expressed their gratitude for the heroic service of Trauma Team members through simple thank you notes and significant philanthropic gifts to support the team’s work.
