The importance of convenient, high-quality trauma care
Trauma is a serious injury or shock to the body. It is often the result of physical force, such as an accident or a violent act. Trauma is the leading cause of death among Floridians 44 years old and younger. Florida's death rate for trauma remains higher than the national average.
When emergency medical services (EMS) personnel respond to critically injured patients, they transport them to the nearest trauma center that can meet their needs.
Rapid access to a trauma center provides timely care, decreasing the likelihood of death and disability. With our trauma specialists, EMS personnel and partnership with the University of South Florida (USF), we are proud to bring life-saving trauma care to patients in our region.
