Searching for Verified Trauma Centers
The designation of trauma facilities is a geopolitical process by which empowered entities, government or otherwise, are authorized to designate. The ACS does not designate trauma centers; instead, it verifies the presence of the resources listed in Resources for Optimal Care of the Injured Patient. This is a voluntary process and only those trauma centers that have successfully completed a verification visit are listed below.
Note. If you do not see any trauma centers listed for your state, this means that currently there are no trauma centers in your state that have voluntarily participated in this process. Only those trauma centers that have participated and have successfully met the criteria established by the American College of Surgeons to become an ACS-verified trauma center are listed on our website.
