St. Joseph Hospital has been a state-designated trauma facility for more than 30 years. Our trauma team is made up of members from more than 12 departments who are always ready to respond to the most serious traumatic incidents.
As part of the trauma team, general surgeons collaborate with emergency physicians to coordinate care. Specially trained nurses provide personalized trauma care. Other specialists such as orthopedic surgeons and intensivists are available for consultation as needed.
There’s also an entire support staff to make sure trauma patients get the timely care they need. Staff members include:
At St. Joseph Hospital, we care for the whole person. That means our job doesn’t stop when the emergency does.
From the emergency department, patients may be admitted to the operating room, intensive care unit, senior behavioral health unit or the appropriate medical-surgical floor for continued care. If possible, they also may be sent home.
Those needing acute rehabilitative services will have access to specialists in physical, occupational and speech therapy, as well as the latest technologies in rehabilitative medicine. We also proudly offer rapid access to our extensive list of primary care providers.
Family and loved ones are treated with care and compassion in a waiting room while their loved one is being cared for. Spiritual care providers are available to connect with families to answer any questions they may have or assist in providing updates on a patient’s status.
