Making strides in trauma care

emergency medical nurse comforting patient Trauma patients require highly specialized care and they can look to the Novant Health trauma services team to provide the quality care they deserve. Coordinated care provided by our emergency department providers and 24-hour/7 day per week trauma and acute care surgeons allow for rapid assessment, stabilization, and intervention when time is most critical.

Designation as a Level 3 trauma center by the NC Office of Emergency Services and maintaining the American College of Surgeons "Resources for the Optimal Care of the Injured Patient" requires an organizational commitment to providing best-in-class care. Collaboration with other hospitals and healthcare facilities as well as a robust performance improvement program ensure we are continuously improving our care delivery processes and clinical outcomes.

Novant Health participates in national and state trauma registries in order to benchmark our quality of care against other trauma programs. We use this data to ensure we meet or exceed the required standards for evidence-based trauma care delivery.
