Advanced Care

When you or a loved one arrives to the Trauma Center, you'll be assessed and treated in a designated Trauma room. These specially designed rooms are fully-equipped with the diagnostic technology and tools needed to rapidly assess your condition. If necessary, severely injured patients can be quickly moved to one of our operating rooms, where a multidisciplinary surgical team can intervene.
