Trauma-Informed Care at Sheppard Pratt

Sheppard Pratt has long-provided highly effective trauma therapy and treatment to our community, and our commitment remains. 

While we no longer offer a dedicated Trauma Disorders Program at Sheppard Pratt, trauma-informed care has been broadened across all of our inpatient programs to expand access to those who need trauma services. We have done this so that we can better serve the local community, serve more people through our hospitals, and focus on acute hospitalization and stabilization. 

Weaving trauma-informed care throughout all of our inpatient programs allows us to be more holistic, provide greater access to more people to get care through our hospitals, and to focus on acute hospitalization and stabilization. At a time when many adults are languishing in emergency rooms, this approach allows us to say “yes” to more people. We will continue to develop individualized, multidisciplinary plans to address our patients’ trauma needs just as we would for any complex disorder.
