Trauma Designation: Level IV

Our Trauma Center is equipped to evaluate, stabilize and treat a wide variety of traumatic injuries. Most emergency and trauma departments are identified at different levels ranging from Level I to Level V Trauma Centers, depending on the availability of specialists and specialty treatment.

Trauma Center levels

A facility earns the title of “designated trauma center” when it meets requirements established by state or local government authorities. The American College of Surgeons verifies the designation of Trauma Centers as Level, I, II, III, IV or V. Levels depend on the types of resources available, and the number of trauma cases handled each year.

The American Trauma Society provides a guide to the levels of Trauma Centers. In brief, services by level signify:

  • Level l – Provides total care for every aspect of injury – from prevention through rehabilitation.
  • Level ll - Definitive care for complex and severe trauma patients.
  • Level lll - Initial evaluation and stabilization (surgically if appropriate) to the trauma patient.
  • Levels IV and V - Initial evaluation, stabilization, diagnostic capabilities and transfer to a higher level of care.
