Trauma and Acute Care Surgery

Saving Lives...

Nobody plans to visit the trauma center or the intensive care unit. But when an unexpected life-threatening or life-changing illness or injury strikes, the experts at Saint Francis are ready. 

Our Trauma Service responds to almost 2,000 emergency cases a year, with the majority of injuries resulting from falls, motor vehicle accidents, knife, gun, and assault violence.
