Lifesaving Trauma and Emergency Care
The Crozer Regional Trauma Center at Crozer-Chester Medical Center is the only trauma center in Delaware County, treating more than 2,000 trauma patients every year. The center’s multidisciplinary team, led by fellowship-trained trauma surgeons who are board-certified in general surgery and surgical critical care, is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to diagnose and treat traumatic injuries. Since 1987, the Crozer Regional Trauma Center has met the high standards of care required to earn its designation as a Regional Level II Trauma Center by the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation.
The trauma team works closely with community emergency medical services (EMS) professionals to provide lifesaving care at the scene of an emergency and while the patient is being transported to the hospital. Trauma patients are first treated in the Crozer-Chester ED, which has four trauma bays with advanced medical equipment. The state-of-the-art facility – one of the busiest EDs in southeastern Pennsylvania – treats more than 35,000 patients each year. The most critically ill patients are treated in the trauma center’s dedicated eight-bed intensive care unit.
