March 15, 2016 started just like any other day for Officer Matt Pearce. His day quickly took a turn for the worse as he answered a call that left him with five gunshot wounds and very little hope of surviving. As first responders debated on where to take Officer Pearce for care, he was clear: "You are taking me to JPS". Officer Pearce instructed the first responders to take him to JPS, because he knew that going to the only Level I Trauma Center in Tarrant County would increase his chance of survival. "It's a well-known fact in the police department, that if you're injured or suffer a trauma, you go to JPS," says Officer Pearce. "I believe in the doctors at JPS. On March 15th you wouldn't find a doctor on the planet that expected me to live - but JPS did their best and gave me a chance and it worked. JPS saved my life."
