Trauma Hospitals in Indiana

Indiana Trauma Hospitals

Injury is the leading cause of death for Hoosiers between the ages of 1 and 34. More than 95,000 Hoosiers are hospitalized for injuries—and more than 5,000 die—each year. Because trauma care requires special training and equipment, only a limited number of hospitals are prepared to deliver life-saving care on a 24-hour basis. Currently, there are 20 American College of Surgeons-certified trauma hospitals in Indiana and two hospitals "in the process" of ACS certification.
