Governor Greg Abbott says the designation of DHR Health as the Rio Grande Valley’s first Level One trauma center is a big step forward for health care in the region.

Abbott was present Wednesday as DHR officials announced that their location in Edinburg has become the first hospital south of San Antonio to receive the designation.

The designation means that the hospital is certified as able to provide treatment for all levels of injury or trauma 24 hours a day. Abbott praised the designation, saying the growth of the Valley justifies the need for a Level One trauma center in the region.
