Twenty-five years ago our affiliate, the Central Ohio Trauma System, began as a local resource serving the Greater Columbus, Ohio community with trauma prevention and education to increase victim survival after a trauma event. But the Central Ohio Trauma System didn't stop where most trauma networks do.
They've doubled the size of their service area and evolved into a healthcare coalition for trauma, emergency services, and emergency preparedness and response.
No longer just an acronym, COTS is now their formal name signifying the evolution of their coalition and representing all their members and the diverse work they do.
The Central Ohio Trauma System is now COTS.
