Ascension, the largest U.S. healthcare system, has many of the Level 1 and Level 2 trauma centers in the nation. These facilities are more than an emergency room or hospital. They have high-tech, life-saving technology and fast-acting trauma surgeons and nurses. Each location is verified as an American College of Surgeons (ACS) rated trauma center. ACS verification confirms that hospital is equipped for and capable of caring for patients with the most serious injuries. We care for severe and debilitating injuries, such as dangerous falls, motor vehicle accidents, gunshot wounds, farm injuries, and stabbings. Some of our centers also offer advanced burn care.
Our trauma surgeons, specializing in brain and spine, bone and muscle, and heart and lung injuries, are immediately available anytime, day or night, weekend or holiday. The hospital’s critical care departments are part of the emergency response team when the trauma patient arrives -- as every minute counts.
These Ascension Hospital are very active in the community sharing injury prevention information and hosting education classes and events. Don’t text and drive. It forces you to look away from the road. Accidents happen, and when they do, Ascension Trauma Care is ready.
