OUR LEVEL III TRAUMA CENTER
Our Level III Trauma Center is fully equipped to handle the most urgent and serious traumatic injuries and is expertly staffed by board certified trauma surgeons in the hospital 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our highly experienced trauma team works closely with regional Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers and medical evacuation helicopters. We have an on-site landing pad that enables air rescue and critical-care transport to Havasu Regional Medical Center at any time, day or night.
A state-accredited trauma center is required to have 24-hour availability of a trauma resuscitation team that includes healthcare providers from the Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, Operating Room, and Post-Anesthesia Care Unit, as well as specialists from respiratory therapy, radiology, the Blood Bank, and pharmacy.
Individuals with life-threatening injuries or illnesses are given priority admission and immediate access to our full array of advanced diagnostic and imaging services under the direction of our trauma surgeons.
Following initial treatment in the Emergency Department, the trauma team provides care to patients through their hospital stay and if needed, the trauma surgeon will consult with our expert specialists, including emergency medicine, neurosurgery, urology, orthopedics, hand, plastic surgery and others.
