ADVANTAGES OF LEVEL I TRAUMA DESIGNATION

Santa Clara Valley Medical Center has been designated by the American College of Surgeons as a Level I Trauma Center for over 30 years. This is the highest level of certification possible for emergency care.

The Respiratory Rehabilitation Unit is equipped and staffed 24/7 with specially trained, board-certified medical and surgical teams to provide immediate care for patients suffering from life-threatening and disabling traumatic injuries. These critical services for both adult and pediatric trauma patients include, but are not limited to:

  • Acute care surgery
  • Anesthesiology
  • Brain Injury
  • Burn Injury
  • Cardiothoracic
  • Intensive Care Specialists
  • Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedics
  • Radiology
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Trauma Operating Room available 24/7
  • Vascular Surgery
Having the highest level of emergency response on the same campus as the Rehabilitation Center means that patients don’t have to be transferred to other facilities if the need for a higher level of care arises.
