Carilion Clinic marked a special milestone today and invited the community to celebrate.

As of this week, the clinic has been designated as a level one trauma center for 30 years.

The "Triumph over Trauma" event reunited staff and doctors with former patients and their families as they shared their stories of survival and recovery.

Those who attended were appreciative of the recognition and the leaders of the clinic 

Carilion Clinic is the only Level 1 Trauma Center in Southwest Virginia.
