Trauma Center

Salina Regional Health Center is a Level III Trauma Center, providing specialized care for patients with serious or life-threatening injuries. Our state-of-the-art facilities include a 26-bed Emergency Department with four trauma/cardiac event suites, 18-bed Intensive Care Unit and eight operating rooms.

Trauma patients are brought to Salina Regional Health Center by ground and air ambulances from across north central Kansas.

Our Level III Trauma Center offers 24-hour immediate coverage by emergency medicine physicians and 24-hour-a-day access to a trauma response team consisting of a trauma surgeon, emergency department physician, control nurse, intensive care nurse, surgical nurse and staff from radiology, laboratory, blood bank, respiratory care, security and chaplaincy.

Paramedics and doctors in the region have a dedicated line to call for traumatically injured patients, which sets off a cascade of alerts to people on the response team to report to the trauma suite in the emergency department.

Salina Regional’s Level III Trauma Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons.
