Trinity Health System’s Orthopedic and Sports Medicine have served the Ohio Valley for more than 30 years. Trinity’s Orthopedics and Sports Medicine service line is a multidisciplinary program that specializes in musculoskeletal care, concussion management, physical therapy, sport chiropractic, athletic training, regenerative medicine, and performance enhancement. In 2015, Sports Medicine became 1 of 12 programs to offer all three parts of the C3 Neuro rehabilitation system for concussion management. The C3 Neuro, is a three package rehabilitation system that works on balance, vision, eye tracking, depth perception, and cognitive training. In response to our aging community we’ve concentrated efforts to develop a comprehensive fall prevention and treatment program. Our program incorporates water therapy and management of vestibular conditions and syndromes.
To continue our excellent care and progress in rehabilitation we’d like to pursue the installation of a hydrotherapy pool or Swim-EX. Aquatic rehabilitation programs offer exercise in a limited weight bearing environment which lessens the pressure on joints and as a result patients are more confident, experience less pain, and experience faster recovery times.
In Orthopedics we have significantly grown in the new and exciting field of Regenerative Medicine. Our new Regenerative Medicine space is set and ready for continued advancement in finding new ways to help the body heal, track outcomes, and implement randomized as well as controlled studies that will aid in validating the specific techniques used for treatment. Our goal is for Regenerative Physicians and Orthopedic Surgeons to work together to provide optimal care for their patients.
To further refine the Regenerative Medicine field and to provide better visualization of interventions, we would like to purchase 2 portable musculoskeletal ultrasound units for our outreach locations, a Medicus Health Adjustable Exam table for lab draw, Coulter Cell Counter and Cell Viability Analyzer, Eppendorf high Speed Centrifuge, K2-Negative 80 Degree Freezer, and a Nitrous Oxide Sedation System. Combining these key pieces of equipment will provide physicians with accurate information to allow appropriate patient selection and increase their ability to predict positive patient outcomes. This equipment has been researched and selected to allow bed-side/real time testing, quality control, and accurate in office data collection. Real time data will allow Trinity to provide individualized patient care, increase patient comfort, and ultimately save patients from unnecessary procedures.
Trinity Health System is constantly improving the level of excellent care we provide to our Emergency room patients. We are committed to our patients and community therefore we are eagerly striving to gain Trauma status. Within the last year we have 4 Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) certified nurses that are currently serving our Emergency Room 24/7. SANE certified nurses are forensic nurses who have received special training to conduct sexual assault evidentiary exams for rape victims. These nurses are specially trained in the medical, psychological, and forensic examination of a sexual assault victim. With sex trafficking on the rise and our current culture these nurses serve as a vital asset in serving our community.
In addition to our SANE certifications we have also been recognized by The American College of Cardiology for our confirmed expertise and commitment in treating patients who are experiencing chest pain. Trinity Health System was awarded Chest Pain Center v5 Accreditation with Primary PCI based on rigorous onsite evaluation of the staff’s ability to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients who may be experiencing a heart attack. Chest Pain Center v6 Accreditation is a quality improvement program designed for hospital cardiovascular (CV) teams that are focused on the efficient and effective care of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients.
As the ever-changing field of Emergency Medicine advances, it is Trinity Health System’s goal to advance and change with it. As a part of our advancement to a level 3 Trauma Unit designation, we are dedicated to making all the necessary financial investments required. To better serve our community we are looking to purchase 2 portable Ultrasound SONOSITE Machines, a Level 1 rapid infuser, as well as add a Trauma Residency Program to our Emergency Department. A portable Ultrasound SonoSite Machine will improve with point of care application of diagnostic imaging, general imaging and image processing technology. The use of this machine will help improve time-to-diagnosis, patient outcomes, procedural efficiency, and workflow. Purchasing a rapid infuser will allow us to replace traumatic blood loss for trauma patients. The Level 1 rapid infuser is a fast flow rate fluid warmer. Adding a Trauma Residency Program to our already highly trained Emergency Department staff will truly benefit our community by providing services here at home that would have otherwise been sought out in bigger cities. We are committed in treating our patients and providing elite care to all.
Trinity Health System’s Birth Center is a faith based and family focused department that provides a compassionate and comfortable environment for new families to gather and welcome their new additions into the world. Our Birth Center offers all private patient rooms, experienced nurses to assist patients through the birthing process, and a lactation specialist onsite that specializes in assisting new moms with breast feeding. Trinity also offers Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists. These specialists are onsite and have expertise in high risk obstetrics. In 2019, Trinity Health System Birth Center implemented the utilization of a Medtronic Plasma Blade in all cesarean births. The Medtronic Plasma Blade offers the precision of a scalpel, the bleeding control of traditional electrosurgery without the extensive collateral tissue damage, promotes timeliness with emergency cesareans, and significantly reduces scaring while improving the patient’s incision healing process. As a commitment to our female patients and their families, we recently opened our Comprehensive Women‘s Health Center. Our goal is to accommodate our patients’ birth plans and respect their choice of care by providing the necessary expertise.
In our efforts to continue to provide excellent care to our new mothers and their families, our main priority is to purchase an ultrasound machine and cardiac monitors for the Birth Center. An Ultrasound machine plays an important role in accurately defining fetal head position and during the labor process. It is also vital in determining the station. Cardiac monitors that can be used on both mom and baby offer the safest levels of care for both. The use of cardiac monitors will allow us to detect changes in heart rate and rhythm as well as providing blood pressures of the baby while in labor. Cardiac monitors also are necessary to provide a clinical assessment of both patients and to ensure the safest outcome for all. FRONT SIDE
Trinity’s Behavioral Medicine Department is the area’s only full service provider of both mental health and addiction recovery services. The department is joint commission accredited under the comprehensive accreditation manual for Behavioral Health Care.
Our mental health services cover inpatient treatment, residential services, intensive outpatient programs, and individual counseling. Our addiction services offer assessments, inpatient detoxification, residential services, intensive outpatient, relapse prevention, and individual counseling. Currently the Inpatient Mental Health Unit is licensed to serve 20 adult mental health patient beds, and our Addiction Recovery can serve 8 adult patient beds.
The professionals involved with Trinity Behavioral Health represent a variety of disciplines: psychiatry, addictionologist, clinical nurse specialist, pastoral care, licensed social workers, licensed professional counselors, licensed chemical dependency counselors and liaisons to local courts, and physician offices.
In the behavioral health world, much focus is being placed on reducing ligature risks. Ligature risks are those environmental factors that can contribute to an attempted suicide. In its effort to provide the safest environment possible for our patients we are making a financial commitment to reduce these ligatures. The first priority is replacing furniture that is more resistant to being a ligature risk while maintaining the therapeutic appearance of the unit.
Our Images Center for women is 1 of 35 Certified Quality Breast Centers of Excellence by National Quality Measures for Breast Centers in the country. Our excellent staff paired with state of the art equipment allows us to provide top notch care to our patients. In August 2018, we purchased the Affirm 3D Breast Tomosynthesis Biopsy through Hologic. This purchase gave us the ability to offer a more satisfactory patient experience through the added level of comfort throughout the process and provides a more dignified procedure.
In continuing to provide top notch care to our patients, our mammography center is seeking to add a Trident Specimen Radiography System. This system redefines breast specimen imaging with Hologic’s selenium detector technology. Combined with easy-to-use software, this new equipment will be able to produce exceptionally sharp digital images which will result in shorter procedures and a quicker path to patient treatment.
In order to stay on the cutting-edge of technology and to improve our patient experience and care, we would like to upgrade to the SCOUT; a wire-free radar localization system. With this equipment we will be able to heighten the accuracy and comfort of each patient by providing them with a less invasive procedure in mapping out the cancerous lesions. By using SCOUT our surgeons will be able to precisely target the affected tissue making it possible for more successful surgeries, optimized breast conservation strategies, and enhanced outcomes for women.

Since the opening of The Heart Center at Trinity Health System in 2001, we have served the Ohio Valley with world class cardiac care. As one of the leading cardio thoracic programs in the Ohio Valley, The Heart Center offers a full service of cardiac and vascular procedures including non-invasive cardiac testing, cardio-pulmonary rehabilitation services, diagnostic and interventional cardiac procedures, diagnostic and interventional vascular procedures, electrophysiology services, and cardiac surgery. Over the past year, as a result of our exceptional staff, we have decreased the length of our patients stay and expedited their recovery time significantly. We have implemented the use of a less invasive heart catheterization technique that proves safer for our patients and has elevated the patient experience while in The Heart Center. We are currently looking to expand our cardio thoracic surgeon staff to serve a higher volume of patients.
As The Heart Center continues to grow and serve our community, it is necessary to purchase specific equipment to aide in the world class cardiac care. A state of the art Stockart Ablation machine for the electrophysiology lab will allow us to continue to perform cardiac ablations in the electrophysiology lab. Performing cardiac ablations is an integral portion of our electrophysiology services. An Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) provides the exact measurement of a blockage both in cardiac and vascular procedures and ensures accuracy of patient diagnosis. The IVUS helps to decide, guide, and confirm the right interventional treatment for each patient. The purchase of a dedicated Ultrasound for The Heart Center will increase the volume of patients we are able to serve, and will shorten the length of a patient’s stay. The Ultrasound is vital in the analysis of valves and blood flow and provides a live picture of the patient’s heart.
Ultrasound is a growing service line for our health system as it offers an alternative to radiation producing equipment for visualization of various parts of the body. Ultrasound has been an integral part of the growing interventional and vascular imaging services at Trinity Health System in 2018. Our hospital currently has 3 Philips ultrasound machines, but they are nearing the end of their life status. A 4th ultrasound is needed to support the Interventional Radiology Service and to create better access to outpatient ultrasound services. We plan to systematically replace the aging technology with state of the art equipment to better the care we offer to our patients.
In 2018 Trinity Health System installed 2 brand new CT Scanners; a 128 Slice CT Scanner and a 64 Slice CT Scanner. The 128 Slice CT Scanner supports our emergency department, outpatient services and inpatient services. The 64 Slice CT Scanner supports the Interventional Radiology Service. When it comes to technology, we have the newest CT Scanners available and the only 128 Slice CT Scanner in the Ohio Valley. To compliment these state of the art CT Scanners, we will need to purchase a 3D workstation. A 3D workstation is needed to render 3D images for CT Angiograms and Cardiac CTs. A Cardiac CT would provide a new service supported by our 128 Slice CT Scanner.
The Tony Teramana Cancer Center has maintained an outstanding reputation for the level of care they provide to their patients since its opening in 2000. We have a robust program that includes a full-range of diagnostic and treatment services that are accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer and is designated as a Community Cancer Program. Our oncology services are provided through the collaboration of a multi-disciplinary team that includes several specialized physicians and dedicated health professionals.
Within our Cancer Center we offer many opportunities for diagnosis and treatment close to home, including, on-site PET/CT imaging services, Hematology/Oncology services, radiation oncology treatment services, and nurse navigation. In order to stay on the cutting edge of technology we plan to replace and upgrade our *Varian 21EX Linear Accelerator, treatment planning equipment, patient navigation software, and patient areas. The improvements through the oncology equipment fund will elevate our patient experience while continuing to provide excellent treatment.
This fund is for future building expansion projects across the Trinity network. This ensures that Trinity is able to grow and serve its community as the needs and opportunities arise.
