Welcome to the Regions Hospital Trauma Centers And Acute Care Surgery Website!
The Level I Adult Trauma Center at Regions Hospital was established and initially verified by the American College of Surgeons in 1993. The program has matured and grown over the years to the current core group of eight core trauma and critical care surgeons.
In July 2009 Regions Hospital, partnering with Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare, received certification as the first Level I Pediatric Trauma Center in the Upper Midwest. It is one of only a few community hospital-based Pediatric Trauma Centers in the country. This center taps the expertise found in the adult trauma center and combines it with the pediatric resources within Gillette and the surgical excellence of the Pediatric Surgical Associates group of pediatric surgeons. It has the highest concentration of trauma surgeons, pediatric surgeons, pediatric orthopedic surgeons and pediatric neurosurgeons in the multi-state area.
The Acute Care Surgery service was initially part of the trauma program. As volumes increased, the service was split off from trauma in 2013. It is staffed by the Regions trauma and general surgeons as well as advanced practice providers.
This website provides easily accessible resources for use of healthcare providers on these services. Providers from other programs are welcome to access and use them as they wish. If you choose to use these materials at your own institution, please cite us as your source.
