Shock Trauma operates in an extremely dynamic and difficult environment. Facing numerous challenges, we are committed to saving lives. Our physicians, nurses, ancillary and support staff bring the highest level of professionalism and expertise in care to each patient and family requiring our services. Shock Trauma also uses the most advanced technology and procedures in traumacare. The active interest and involvement of the Shock Trauma Board of Visitors makes all the difference. These community leaders make it possible to fulfill our life-saving mission. The Shock Trauma Center values the leadership, commitment and contributions of each member of the Board of Visitors.

The Shock Trauma Management and Staff would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every member for their dedication and tireless efforts on behalf of Shock Trauma and the Maryland EMS System.
