Emergency Trauma Center
The Emergency Trauma Center (ETC) at Atrium Medical Center is a Level III trauma center, accredited by the American College of Surgeons. The ETC is capable of providing emergency resuscitation, surgery, and intensive care of most trauma patients.
The ETC is designed for maximum efficiency and features private treatment rooms with wireless monitoring. The expanded emergency services at Atrium Medical Center can accommodate 80,000 children and adults annually.
The ETC organizes treatment areas to speed triage and service—from fast track/minor care to heart and trauma exam rooms. Radiology suites and 64-slice CT inside the center—with lab and additional imaging next door—support timely diagnosis and treatment.
The ETC includes a helicopter landing pad across from the ambulance entrance. The facility also has an enlarged ambulance bay that can accommodate up to eight emergency squads.
Specialized pediatric equipment and treatment areas help doctors treat the specific needs of children, from premature infants to school-aged youngsters.
Physicians who are board certified or residency trained in emergency medicine provide 24-hour immediate coverage. Trauma surgeons and anesthesiologists are available promptly. Department nurses complete advanced training in emergency care (ACLS and PALS).
