Quick access to advanced trauma services, which are not available at every ER, can mean the difference between life and death in an emergency. Studies have shown the more experience the staff has with high-risk surgical situations, the better the patient’s outcomes are for survival. We work together with ground and air Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to bring skillful, immediate care to critically injured patients.

The trauma team is alerted by first responders to await the arrival of the trauma patient. Our patients receive 24/7 care by board-certified doctors and nurses with advanced certifications.
