SHREVEPORT — A regional trauma center operated by LSU Medical School and University Health in Shreveport has been accredited after being on probation for nearly two years.
The Times reports the American College of Surgeons notified medical school administrators about the re-accreditation on Sept. 30.
The center’s probation status was related to administrative issues, including a process for measuring the quality of patient care. LSU Health Shreveport remained a state-designated trauma center during the re-accreditation process.
Inspectors for the accrediting group recommended the health sciences center add staff, prompting LSU Health to recruit Dr. John Owings to head up the center.
