CodyCare: Fast, personalized trauma care
When Cody Williams Martin arrived at Wellstar Atlanta Medical Center with multiple gunshot wounds, our trauma team sprang into action. As a Level I Trauma Center, we are equipped with the expertise and experience to treat severe injuries when every second counts.
Cody was rushed to the operating room — a space that would become familiar as he returned 28 times during his three-month stay at the facility. Cody’s care team was invested in his progress, cheering him on at each milestone.
“Just knowing I had a good, competent surgical team that was dedicated to helping me — that meant everything,” Cody said. “Just the tenacity, the willingness they had to not give up on me. I don’t think I would be here if I had gone to any other place in Atlanta.”
For people like Cody, having access to advanced care can make all the difference in treatment and recovery.
