Founded in 1914, St. Francis Hospital is a general medical and surgical hospital located in Poughkeepsie, NY. The hospital has 333 beds and provides various services including behavioral health programs, addiction recovery services, a special needs preschool, ... more.
Inaugurated in 2002, the C.T. Thompson Award for Excellence in Trauma Care is named for Dr. C.T. Thompson, a now retired Saint Francis Hospital physician who recognized the need for specialized care for patients suffering serious injury.
At the time, few surgeons and fewer hospitals had chosen to provide optimal specialized care for trauma victims. Dr. Thompson was instrumental in developing Saint Francis Hospital as a regional resource for specialized trauma care, as well as for fostering American College of Surgeons (ACS) commitment to improving trauma care on a national level. Dr. Thompson served as the national chair of the ACS Committee on Trauma, helped to initiate the Advanced Trauma Life Support educational program for physicians, and worked to establish standards for hospitals participating in the care of trauma patients.
