Dr. Kaysie Banton, the trauma medical director at Swedish Medical Center, said Trauma Survivors Day is equally rewarding to the care teams and medical staff.

“I think I have the best job on the planet. I get to take people who are totally broken and put them back together, but I also see people experience one of the worst days of their lives, and by the time they leave the hospital, they make an enormous amount of progress. But I don't see their lives put back together, and I think it's incredibly important for all of us to see that,” Banton said.
