Trauma Center

Salina Regional Health Center is a Level III Trauma Center, providing specialized care for patients with serious or life-threatening injuries. Our state-of-the-art facilities include a 26-bed Emergency Department with four trauma/cardiac event suites, 18-bed Intensive Care Unit and eight operating rooms.

Trauma patients are brought to Salina Regional Health Center by ground and air ambulances from across north central Kansas.

Our American College of Surgeons verified Level lll trauma center offers 24-hour coverage by a designated trauma team. The core team is made up of a trauma surgeon and an emergency department physician; ICU, surgical and emergency department nurses; and staff from radiology, laboratory, blood bank, respiratory care, security and chaplaincy.

Paramedics and doctors in the region have a dedicated line to call for traumatically injured patients, which sets off a cascade of alerts to people on the response team to report to the trauma suite in the emergency department.

Salina Regional’s Level III Trauma Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons.

Fall Risk

Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans. Falls threaten seniors' safety and independence and generate enormous economic and personal costs.

However, falling is not an inevitable result of aging. Through fall risk assessments, practical lifestyle adjustments, evidence-based falls prevention programs, and clinical-community partnerships, the number of falls among seniors can be substantially reduced.
