Trauma Center Designations
Kettering Health Network is committed to caring for all levels of emergencies. Some trauma victims need an advanced level of care. A designated Trauma Center decreases the likelihood of injury or death for trauma victims by providing excellent and coordinated care in a critical situation.
Similar to a Level I, Level II
centers have a full range of surgical and medical specialists with resources available around the clock.
centers have resources for emergency stabilization, resuscitation, surgery, and intensive care of most trauma patients. They are able to transport patients to Level I or II trauma centers when a higher level of care is needed.
