Level I Trauma Care Programs

University Hospital offers a unique level of comprehensive burn and trauma care for all ages, with verification by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) as a Level I Trauma Center for both pediatric and adult patients, as well as an ACS-verified Burn Center.

This rare designation was given by the ACS in 2007 after a rigorous examination process, making UW Hospital and Clinics the only hospital in the state to be ACS-verified in all 3 areas.


Trauma surgeon Ann O'Rourke, MD, stresses the importance of multispecialty collaboration in the care of trauma patients.
