The hospital is verified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level 1 Adult Trauma Center - a Level II Pediatric Trauma Center and the Comprehensive Burn Care Center is verified by the American Burn Association. 

What We Do

The Trauma Center is one of the busiest in the nation, with nearly 3,000 admissions related to trauma per year. The 27-bed Surgical Intensive Care Unit admits more than 2,000 critically ill surgical patients per year. The Comprehensive Burn Care Center treats more than 1,700 outpatient and inpatient burn injuries every year.

The division consists of physicians, nurse practitioners, and nurse coordinators who specialize in the care of critically ill patients. All physicians are full-time faculty in the Department of Surgery, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and are heavily involved in the training of residents and medical students. A fellowship in surgical critical care/trauma is sponsored by the division, as well as the trauma/burn research fellowship.
