CHICAGO (AP) — The trauma unit at the Cook County Hospital is featured in a National Geographic special called “Chicago Trauma.”
The one-hour show, which airs Tuesday night at 9 p.m. CDT, follows a team of young doctors working in one of the nation’s busiest trauma centers.
The Chicago hospital’s trauma unit sees more than 5,000 patients a year.
The National Geographic program documents the work of trauma and burn surgeons Andrew Dennis and Fred Starr, who lead a team treating victims of gunshot wounds, stabbings and car crashes.
