Advanced Levels of Trauma Care

Not all trauma centers are able to provide the same resources. Each trauma center receives a different level of verification depending on the programs and resources they have in place to treat and prevent severe injuries.

Trauma center verification is awarded by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma. The process occurs every three years and includes rigorous guidelines and requirements. Requirements range from having a full-time coordinator of trauma care to providing injury prevention education and conducting research. Potential trauma centers must show an unwavering dedication to providing high-quality, comprehensive trauma care, preventing injury and continuing to improve patient outcomes for trauma patients across the country.
