When a patient is brought to the Elvis Presley Trauma center, a team of over 20 medical professionals begins the immediate delivery of lifesaving care. Our multidisciplinary medical team includes surgeons, anesthesiologists, trauma nurse practitioners, certified registered nurse anesthetists, nurses, respiratory therapists, orderlies, x-ray techs, lab techs and others who have dedicated their careers to treating the most severely injured patients.
Our facility includes its own shock trauma and critical care assessment facilities, operating rooms, recovery beds and blood bank resources. As patients heal, they continue to receive expert care in our trauma intensive care, trauma step-down and post-trauma units. Because Regional One Health is a major health system and research hospital, patients also have seamless access to world-class specialists, rehabilitation services, burn and wound care, imaging and other services.
We also know that in a medical crisis, seconds count. Regional One Health is home to MedCom, the regional communication center for ground and air ambulance transport. This essential service allows paramedics and trauma physicians to interact while a patient is being transported, giving physicians the chance to prepare for a patient’s arrival and paramedics an opportunity to perform advanced procedures to further stabilize the patient.
