Carilion Clinic was the first designated Level I trauma center (the highest designation of trauma care) in this part of Virginia. We have continued to provide comprehensive access to trauma services and specialists since 1983.
A Level I Trauma Center provides the highest level of surgical care to trauma patients. When you suffer a serious injury and are treated at a Level I Trauma Center in our hospital, your odds of survival increase by an estimated 20 to 25 percent.

Our Commitment to Community Health
The majority of trauma cases each year result from motor vehicle crashes, falls, firearm injuries, and burns. As part of our commitment to community outreach, Carilion Clinic’s Trauma Services Injury Prevention Education Program offers you and your family education on numerous types of injury prevention.
