ECMC Lifeline Foundation

Tough cases. Exceptional medical care.

Each year, thousands of patients come to ECMC with serious
injuries and debilitating conditions seeking medical treatment
and rehabilitation. Because of the high level of skill and dedication required to
earn the designation of Adult Regional Trauma Center, ECMC is a magnet for outstanding
and gifted physicians, surgeons, nurses, and other medical professionals. The following cases
illustrate how the excellence of our trauma care translates to success at every level at ECMC.
