Verified trauma centers that exceed the standard
When multiple, significant injuries occur, it’s important to have quick access to a verified trauma center for treatment that offers the best possible chances for survival and recovery. Verification means that Parkview’s trauma centers meet or exceed national standards for the procedures used in treating traumatic injuries.
In 2000, the Parkview Trauma Center was initially verified by the American College of Surgeons, followed by the addition and verification of the Parkview Pediatric Trauma Center in 2003. Parkview achieved reverification for both these trauma centers in 2006, 2009, 2012, 2015, 2018 and 2022.
Our goal is always to provide the best trauma care to each adult and pediatric trauma patient. For verified trauma centers such as ours, four areas of activity are essential to achieving that goal: quality, registry, research and outreach/education.
