Carilion is proud to have been the first Level I trauma center in Virginia, and we continue to provide comprehensive access to trauma services. Our board-certified surgeons are specialized in surgical intensive care and are highly experienced in treating critically ill patients. Our trauma team includes specialists in neurosurgery, head and neck surgery, wound care, orthopaedics, pain management and stroke services. If a patient is admitted to the hospital, an individual plan of care is developed by the trauma team, which consists of nurses, trauma surgeons, case managers, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, physical, occupational and speech therapists, nutritionists, respiratory therapists, clinical pharmacists, rehab physicians and social workers. It is our goal to provide close integration and management of patient progress from time of injury to hospital discharge.
Our Carilion New River Valley Medical Center also serves as a trauma center for the region and is designated as a Level III facility.
