Miami Valley Hospital, Dayton’s Only Level I Trauma Center

Miami Valley Hospital’s Level I Trauma Center, the only one in the Dayton region, provides the highest level of care for the most critically injured patients in southwest Ohio and east Indiana, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  

Trauma care begins at the scene of a serious injury when emergency medical services (EMS) notify the Miami Valley Hospital Level I Trauma Center that a trauma patient is on the way. Our multidisciplinary trauma team assembles and meets the patient upon arrival at the Shaw Emergency and Trauma Center. When every moment matters, the skilled trauma team provides specialty critical care — such as advanced surgery and intensive care — and coordinates rehabilitation and follow-up care.

Miami Valley Hospital also partners with community hospitals to improve care for patients who would benefit from a Level I trauma center. Trauma transfer agreements facilitate prompt identification of patients with severe injuries and expedite transfer if needed.

Miami Valley Hospital’s Level I Trauma Center, one of the busiest and most experienced in Ohio, provides care around the clock for the most seriously injured patients in 17 counties in southwest Ohio and east Indiana. Each year more than 3,300 victims of major trauma receive care after injuries resulting from vehicle crashes, industrial accidents, penetrating trauma or falls. Miami Valley’s Adult Burn Unit is ready to serve patients with burns of every severity level.

Atrium Medical Center, Warren County’s Only Level III Trauma Center 

Atrium Medical Center’s Level III Trauma Center, the only one in Warren County, provides immediate assessment, resuscitation and care for seriously injured patients in southwest Ohio.

Trauma care begins at the scene of a serious injury when emergency medical services (EMS) notify Atrium Medical Center’s Level III Trauma Center that a trauma patient is on the way. When every moment matters, our trauma team assembles and meets the patient upon arrival at the Emergency Trauma Center to provide rapid assessment, resuscitation, initiation of appropriate treatment and ongoing care.

In addition to providing medical treatment, Atrium’s trauma surgeons, Emergency Department physicians, nurses, chaplains, and other support staff help patients and their families cope with traumatic events associated with their injury or condition. To assure every trauma patient receives the level of care and services they need, Atrium Medical Center’s Level III Trauma Center transfers patients to Miami Valley Hospital’s Level I Trauma Center when a patient’s injuries require the skills of surgical specialists and other advanced care.
