A Level 1 Trauma Center can provide total care for every aspect of an injury—from prevention to rehabilitation. UR Medicine has the only full-service Level 1 trauma facility in the nine-county area.
At UR Medicine, the Kessler Trauma Center has been designated as Level 1 because we have all of these features, as defined by the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma:
UR Medicine's Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Trauma facilities go beyond the requirements for a Level 1 Trauma Center. Our surgeons work in operating rooms specially designed to accommodate patients with complex and multiple injuries. They routinely perform complex reconstructions, both on patients at the time of their accident and on post-traumatic conditions like non-unions, mal-unions, and infections.
