Introduction:

What really makes one health care facility different from another? At Trinity Health System, the answer to this question lies within the conscience of the organization; in other words, its philosophy of patient care, and its degree of commitment to creating an environment which allows it to carry out that philosophy.

Trinity is accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Hospitals, a member of the American Hospital Association, Voluntary Hospitals of America and the Catholic Hospital Association. The system offers a full array of acute and outpatient services on two campuses. Trinity also maintains physician offices, Walk-in Lab Draw facilities the Tony Teramana Cancer Center, WorkCare and the Digestive and Nutrition Center throughout the Tri-State area.

Additionally, at Trinity, we understand patient education is a vital role in maintaining a healthy community. Our staff participates in numerous health fairs and blood screening programs throughout the year.
