Immediate response to critical injuries
Traumatic injuries can threaten your health, your life and your long-term chances of recovery. It’s essential to have around-the-clock access to trauma experts with the skill and technology to treat critical injuries stemming from accidents or assault.
Why Trauma Centers are important
A facility earns the title of Level, I, II, III, IV or V “designated trauma center” when it meets requirements established by the state. Levels depend on the types of resources available and the number of trauma cases handled each year. In addition, Good Samaritan Medical Center took extra steps to receive trauma verification by the American College of Surgeons.
