TRAUMA AND BURN SURGERY

DIVISION OVERVIEW

The Trauma/Critical Care Division is based at Harborview Medical Center. The only Level 1 (regional) Trauma Center serving Washington, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho, this clinical arm of Harborview - known as the Northwest Regional Trauma Center - cares for emergency surgical and trauma patients, and is closely linked to the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center. Working closely with Plastic Surgery division, Trauma / Critical Care provides highly skilled, emergency and rehabilitative burn care for victims in the four-state region. By cooperative agreement with Children's Hospital, Harborview is also the region's only Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center.
