Memorial Hospital Central is a Level I Trauma Center staffed 24 hours a day by trauma surgeons, specially trained nurses and support staff.

Most trauma patients are seen first in the emergency department. Once patients are stabilized, the trauma team takes over. This team stays with you or your family member throughout the critical care stage providing valuable care, communication and comfort to both the patient and family members.

The trauma center at Memorial Hospital is one of the busiest in Colorado. It is easy to understand why–Memorial Hospital has a new emergency department, state-of-the art equipment, and adult, pediatric and neonatal intensive care units. Memorial Hospital is the right choice when seconds count.
