The University of Arizona Banner Medical Center – Tucson has been designated by the State of Arizona and verified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level I Trauma Center. Our trauma surgeons are immediately available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to care for seriously injured patients. Experts in their field, our trauma surgeons have the training and experience to handle all emergencies; their knowledge and responsiveness are continually enhanced by their active involvement in research and education as faculty members of The University of Arizona. All surgeons are specially trained and board certified in critical care medicine. This is the only surgical group in the region with such specialty training in both trauma and critical care.

Our trauma team treats more than 5,000 patients each year at our Level I trauma center. We’re committed to preventing traumatic injuries. Team members participate in several trauma prevention efforts throughout the community. Injury prevention presentations are customized for schools, health fairs, businesses, and community groups.
