In addition to treating trauma patients, Regional West’s Trauma Services Department places strong emphasis on continuing education and community education for both clinical and non-clinical staff members. Injury prevention also serves as a vital link.

The trauma registry is an electronic database that details patient injuries and outcomes. Using this information, medical professionals and support services can regularly monitor and improve the trauma system, building a program that is unmatched in the region.

What we do

  • 593 trauma patients were treated at Regional West Medical Center.
  • 293 patients were trauma team activations, which means they were severely injured.
  • Falls were the leading cause of injury, followed by motor vehicle accidents.
