Beebe recognizes May as Trauma Informed Care Month

May 16, 2023

Beebe Healthcare is recognizing May as Trauma Informed Care Month. This is also the fifth year the State of Delaware has done the same.

In 2022, Beebe was recognized by the governor’s office and Trauma Matters Delaware as a compassionate champion for the educational opportunities and outcomes provided in Beebe’s first year of becoming trauma aware. That recognition is directly linked to the compassionate, patient-centric care, service and support Beebe team members provide every day.

Beebe is entering year two of its trauma-informed care journey as an organization. To show its support, the Beebe board of directors signed a proclamation to designate May as Trauma Informed Care Month.

Beebe recognizes the effects of adverse childhood experiences and adverse community events that can potentially have physical and emotional impact across a person’s lifetime. This includes Beebe’s staff as members of the Sussex County community. In the spirit of awareness and openness, Beebe wants to acknowledge the difficulties faced by so many caregivers and patients.

“It’s Beebe’s privilege to provide healthcare for our Sussex County community with compassionate care that takes into consideration the whole person and their circumstances,” said Dr. David A. Tam, Beebe Healthcare president and CEO. “This holistic care improves long-term outcomes for patients and enhances our healthcare’s system bond of trust with our community.”
