What is a Level 4 Trauma Center?
Emergency departments are designated by the resources they have available to treat cases of traumatic injury. A Level 4 designation means that our emergency medical staff can provide advanced life support measures that can stabilize a trauma patient enough to be transported to another facility, if necessary. Having a trauma center locally, dramatically increases positive outcomes in trauma patients because they are able to get lifesaving care right away, without having to wait to travel to another town or a bigger facility.
