Trauma Center

In a trauma every second counts. That is why the Aspirus Trauma Center is committed to delivering the best care in the face of an emergency.

Aspirus Wausau Hospital is designated as a Level II Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons-Committee on Trauma. It is the only verified Level II Trauma Center in Wisconsin north of Marathon County.

When a patient is determined to be a trauma patient, the EMS will transport that person to the nearest trauma center, bypassing closer hospitals that are not trauma centers or are at a lower level. There are several factors involved in the decision of where to take a patient, including the severity of the injury and the need for immediate treatment.

A trauma center is not only an emergency department, but also an accredited facility capable of highly specialized and timely treatment for the most critical of injuries. Our entire hospital staff is committed to delivering the highest level of trauma care.

The Aspirus Trauma Center is in a constant state of readiness 24-hours a day. Before a patient arrives, our trauma team is fully prepared and assembled in the trauma room, ready to treat traumatic injuries that often require immediate and complex intervention to save patients lives.
