Level III Trauma Center

Our Level III Trauma Center receives patients who have sustained physical injury caused by violence or other forces. We provide prompt assessment, resuscitation, stabilization and if necessary, prompt transfer to a Level I Trauma facility by ambulance or MedFlight helicopter. We are part of a statewide trauma system and are designated as such by the Massachusetts State Office for Emergency Services and verified by the American College of Surgeons.

Our trauma center is staffed by nurses and physicians specifically trained in emergency medicine. Each of our full-time emergency physicians is board certified in emergency medicine.
