Level One Trauma and Burn Center
The following article was published in the summer 2007 issue of UW Health's Level One newsletter for emergency medicine health professionals:
After passing a rigorous exam process, University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics has been re-verified as a "Level One" trauma center for both pediatric and adult patients by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), the highest rating available for trauma facilities in the country.
The ACS also verified UW Hospital's burn service as a burn center, making it the only hospital in Wisconsin to carry all three of these distinguished designations.
A Level One facility is a regional resource trauma center capable of providing patients with the most advanced and comprehensive care available.
