Medical training is only available at a limited number of facilities — and to a limited number of military personnel. Today’s military branches simply cannot accommodate all who need to be trained.

Your support of HonorHealth’s Military Partnership program fulfills this vital need for both military personnel and local first responders to maintain their certifications and stay on top of evolving treatment protocols.

Imagine being in a dusty military field hospital thousands of miles from home, charged with caring for the traumatically wounded. Back home you were an office worker; here you are a field medic, and your training prior to deployment included little hands-on experience in treating trauma injuries.

You are shocked by what you see, what you hear, and what you must do. The transition to trauma care is more difficult than imagined, and when every second counts, any delay or confusion can lead to poor outcomes for the injured, even death.

HonorHealth has stepped up to provide realistic, high-quality trauma training for our military medical personnel. Our goal is to prepare those triaging the injured to perform at their optimal level while under pressure, to ensure more of our military men and women make it home.

Since 2004, HonorHealth Military Partnership has trained thousands of military personnel, law enforcement and first responders. Locally, our police officer participants have reported that 11 lives have been saved in the field due to the skills they learned here since that time.

The cost per person trained is about $3,000, but because of you, the program is offered at no cost to the military or to individual participants!

Military PartnershipMilitary Partnership training includes:

  • Advanced practical learning with high-tech, lifelike human patient simulators called manikins
  • Real-life experience during clinical rotations, at our six hospitals, including three Level I Trauma Centers
  • Simulation training rooms, including one set up as a battlefield medical aid station
  • Readiness Skill Sustainment Training for any military medical personnel
  • Exposure to burn trauma management through a Valley burn center
  • K-9 trauma care for our loyal four-legged soldiers and officers
