Emergency & Trauma Center
Adult and pediatric emergency and trauma care when you need it most
HSHS St. Vincent Hospital's Emergency Department and Level II Regional Trauma Center are always ready to care for emergency and trauma patients. Our center is staffed with board-certified emergency medical physicians, an experienced team of trauma surgeons, certified emergency and trauma nurses, and other specialists available at a moment's notice.
When seconds count, you can count on HSHS St. Vincent Hospital's Regional Emergency and Trauma Center to provide the treatment needed. Trauma centers offer more extensive care than emergency departments. The difference between a trauma center and emergency room can be life and death. It's important to understand what your local hospitals offer.
In any emergency situation, always call 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency department.
The emergency department team will assess the patient's condition and determine if the patient should be treated by specialists in a trauma center.
