Trauma Center

The only Level 1 Trauma Center (the highest) in Arizona delivers expert emergency and surgical care to 2,500 patients annually.

When crises strike, parents want the very best for their children. Phoenix Children’s is the only Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center in the state, so we evaluate, stabilize and treat the most serious injuries. When patients receive care at trauma centers, their mortality risk falls by 25%, reduced even further when children are treated at pediatric trauma centers. Adults and children have vastly different needs.

Our brand new trauma center opening in 2017 operates 24/7, 365 days per year, treating 2,500 patients each year. The number will increase right along with Arizona’s population growth. Your donation helps give every child who is rushed through our doors a better chance of survival.
