Trauma Center

A trauma center is not the same thing as an emergency department. At IU Health, our Trauma Centers provide advanced, comprehensive care for traumatic injuries that gives patients access to more resources and technology than they can receive in an emergency department. Trauma centers must have operating rooms, imaging technology, trauma surgeons and other specialty physicians available quickly at all times. Trauma centers must be dedicated to preventing injury, providing high-quality care and improving staff education about the treatment and assessment of traumatic injuries.

IU Health is home to the most experienced Level I Adult Trauma Center at IU Health Methodist Hospital and the state’s only Level I Pediatric Trauma Center at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, both in Indianapolis. IU Health Arnett Hospital in Lafayette and IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie are the state’s only Level III trauma centers. IU Health Bloomington Hospital is working toward Level III Trauma Center designation.
