Today marked a big celebration for the Carilion Clinic in Roanoke.
It's been thirty years since Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital was officially designated as a level one trauma center.
The staff is celebrating three decades of service as southwest Virginia's only level one center.
Today's triumph over trauma celebration is a chance for staff to reunite with former patients and their families.
"Just having this in Roanoke and allowing our community to have access to the resources we have as a level one trauma center, it's huge. It's huge for the community," says Dan Freeman, the Trauma Outreach Coordinator.
