The importance of having ETMC Henderson surgery suites

The “golden hour” refers to the first hour after an injury is sustained. It is the time period when prompt intervention, including emergency surgery if needed, will give the patient the best odds of surviving and having a successful outcome. And it is one of the reasons why it’s so important to have surgery suites available at ETMC Henderson, instead of making it necessary for patients to travel 40 minutes or more before treatment can begin.
