Level III Trauma Care
Mercy Regional Medical Center is a designated Level III Trauma Center, the highest trauma designation among hospitals in southwest Colorado. Our goal is to provide quality trauma-related services to patients, families, referring physicians, and other members of the health care team.
As a trauma center, we have a dedicated team of health care professionals including board-certified surgeons and emergency physicians available 24 hours a day to evaluate and treat trauma patients. Because of the skill and dedication of this team, most people survive their injuries and may return to active, productive lives. Trauma patients may be transported to or from Mercy Regional Medical Center via Flight For Life® Colorado's helicopter air ambulance, which is based on the hospital's helipad.
At Mercy Regional Medical Center, we are dedicated not only to using the latest medical technology and uncompromised quality, but also to keeping the "care" in health care.
