TRAUMA TO TRIUMPH PROGRAM
Santa Clara Valley Medical Center’s Trauma to Triumph Program works with the City of San Jose Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services to provide violence intervention services to patients who have received medical treatment for their injuries at the hospital.
To be eligible for the Trauma to Triumph Program, patients need to be 13 to 30 years of age and have sustained an injury from one or more of the following circumstances:
- Physical Assaults
- Gunshot Wounds
- Stab Wounds
- Assault with a Weapon
Even though being a resident of Santa Clara County is essential, the program has relationships with neighboring counties and referrals may be accepted.
Participation in the Trauma to Triumph Program is completely voluntary.
The Trauma to Triumph Program refers patients to the City of San Jose. After receiving a referral, a Peer “Intervention Specialist” from the City is sent to visit the patient at their bedside. Based on needs identified by the patient, the Intervention Specialist will assist in coordinating services for the patient and their family. Individuals in the program will be intensively followed for up to one year.
In order for a patient to be referred to City of San Jose services, the patient must agree to authorize the disclosure of protected health information. This information may contain medical treatment and demographic information.
You can contact the Trauma to Triumph Program at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center at 408-885-3054. The Nurse Coordinator can provide additional information.
