The Trauma Center is committed to the optimal care of injured patients in an organized system from pre hospital through rehabilitation stages. The care of the injured patient is a coordinated effort between surgery, nursing, and ancillary services. Care is provided with efficiency and the latest knowledge of injury to resuscitate, save lives, and when necessary bring peace to those who pass from our hands. We are dedicated to holistic, family centered care in all age groups. We assure those caring for trauma patients will be well educated; we will provide education to our referring facilities and Emergency Medical Services; we will take a leadership role in research to increase a patient's chance of survival and decrease disability from injury. We are dedicated to the prevention of violence and other mechanisms of injury to provide a safer community.
