Southeast Valley residents needing the highest level of emergency care will be treated closer to home, thanks to Chandler Regional Medical Center’s new provisional status as a Level I Trauma Center, by the Arizona Department of Health Services, Bureau of Emergency Medical Services and Trauma System.

Trauma patients include those injured in motor vehicle or bike accidents, ATV collisions, crush injuries or falls. They can also include patients who have been stabbed or have a gun shot wound.

Chandler Regional’s Trauma Center is equipped with advanced technology and dedicated trauma operating rooms, and partners and coordinates with emergency medical service responders to provide critical care 24 hours a day to the traumatically injured.

The trauma team is made up of medical professionals specially trained to respond to injured patients, and includes anesthesiologists, emergency physicians, hand surgeons, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, trauma critical care surgeons, nurses, and ancillary services.
