Parma Medical Center a Level III Adult Trauma Center

Trauma Care, Closer to Home

Trauma care got a little closer to home for residents and workers in Parma and surrounding communities when MetroHealth Parma Medical Center officially became a provisional Level III Adult Trauma Center, effective October 5, 2020.

Parma’s dense population coupled with MetroHealth’s trauma expertise and MetroHealth Parma Medical Center’s capabilities in emergency, surgical and inpatient care were all contributing factors for seeking Level III Adult Trauma Center designation from the American College of Surgeons.

Providing Trauma Care for Decades

The MetroHealth Medical Center is NE Ohio's leading Level I Adult and Level II Pediatric Trauma Center. 

MetroHealth is one of the first and longest serving Adult Trauma Centers in the region, MetroHealth’s trauma team is nationally known for their skill and teamwork in providing life-saving medical care. That same level of expertise is now available at the Parma Medical Center with Level I Adult Trauma trained dual boarded surgeons/intensivists from MetroHealth’s Main Medical Campus, who will be providing full trauma coverage at MetroHealth Parma.

To receive a Level III Adult Trauma Center designation, a health care institution must be able to provide "prompt assessment, resuscitation, surgery, intensive care and stabilization of injured patients and emergency operations." Level III Adult Trauma Centers include 24-hour immediate coverage by emergency medicine physicians and the prompt availability of general surgeons and anesthesiologists.
