Welcome to the Regions Hospital Trauma Centers Website!

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 from the American College of Surgeons.

  • Regions Hospital, in partnership with Gillette Children’s Hospital, is the first Level I Pediatric Trauma Center certified by the American College of Surgeons in Minnesota.
  • Regions is one of only a few community hospital-based Pediatric Trauma Center in the country.
  • As a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center, it has a specially trained team of healthcare providers, available 24/7 for critically injured children, especially for moderate to severe trauma cases.
  • The time between sustaining an injury and receiving definitive care is the most important predictor of survival—the “golden hour.” Regions Level I pediatric certification assures that young patients will have faster access to all of the specialized trauma care they might need in one hospital.
