The Mississippi Department of Health has issued a level 4 trauma center designation to Wayne General Hospital in Waynesboro.
To qualify, the facility had to demonstrate its ability to evaluate and assess injured patients, many of whom would later be transferred to other facilities.
A spokesman said the Health Department's goal is to maintain an organized system in the state that offers the best patient care available.
