The MetroHealth Medical Center is NE Ohio's leading Level I Adult and Level II Pediatric Trauma Center.
It's a portion of the hospital equipped and staffed to provide comprehensive care to patients with traumatic injuries. In a trauma center, surgical specialists are available around the clock, every day. Everything in that center is designed to meet the unique physical and emotional needs of people who have been through a traumatic event—and the needs of the people who love them. At MetroHealth, trauma patients are treated by professionals who specialize in trauma care.
We have trauma surgeons who are also critical-care physicians. We've met strict requirements for quality, staffing and training from the American College of Surgeons.
In addition, we have a Level 3 Adult Trauma Center at Parma and we partner with the Level 3 trauma programs at Fisher Titus and Mercy Lorain . If you're dealing with trauma, you'll know you're getting care that meets national guidelines for quality and safety.
