Trauma Center

UCGH received designation from the New Mexico Department of Health as a Level IV Trauma Center in July of 2015. A trauma center provides specialized medical services and resources to patients suffering from traumatic injuries. We are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a trauma team that is specially trained and qualified to attend to traumatic injuries.

The time from injury to highly specialized trauma hospital care is critical in saving lives and decreasing disabilities. Trauma centers provide the level of care that can make the difference between life and death.

Trauma Centers must be able to provide immediate, comprehensive, and highly specialized care 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year to patients suffering multi-system, severe, potentially life-threatening or disabling injuries.
