Trauma Care

Few people want to think about trauma care, but if the unexpected happens, it's good to know MetroHealth's Trauma Center is ready to help when every second counts. 

Choosing MetroHealth

The Care You Need for Traumatic Injuries

There are medical emergencies, and there are traumatic, life-threatening injuries that require care in the moment and long-term care later, as you recover. At MetroHealth, people of all ages are brought via ambulance, helicopter or car to our trauma center due to:

  • Falls
  • Car crashes
  • Gunshot wounds
  • Blunt trauma
  • Stab wounds
  • Head injury and traumatic brain injury
  • Burns
  • Additional complex injuries

These life-threatening injuries often require more care—more surgeons, more equipment, more nurses and more expertise—than a standard emergency room can provide. For more information, see Emergency Department. To  protect your everyday health needs, make an appointment with a MetroHealth primary care provider.
