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.
Once patients are stabilized, their care is frequently transferred to our Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit (MSICU), where our team of surgical critical care specialists offers the highest level of life-saving services for patients suffering from life-threatening conditions including:
- Critical injury
- Cardiac arrest
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spine injury
- Brain aneurysm
- Necrotizing fasciitis (flesh-eating bacteria)
