Our well-coordinated efforts with the county’s Emergency Medical System allow us to initiate life saving treatment in the "golden hour" that ultimately translates to improved outcomes.

Other injured patients are admitted to one of our other trauma units such as NeuroStepdown, NeuroTelemetry or 3NE Orthopedic Trauma.
