Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas is home to one of only three American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS-COT) Level 1 Trauma Centers in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, covering 21 counties and more than 5 million lives.
Being an ACS-verified Level 1 Trauma Center means the Baylor Dallas Trauma Program has the facilities, trained staff, advanced technology and access to the wide range of physician specialists necessary to diagnose and treat severe injuries and complex conditions 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Our on-call team includes: emergency medicine specialists, board-certified trauma surgeons, anesthesiologists, neurosurgeons, heart and vascular surgeons, orthopedic trauma surgeons, as well as other specialists in plastic surgery, radiology and many other fields on our medical staff.
Annually, the Baylor Dallas Trauma Program treats more than 2,700 patients, who have a wide variety of injuries including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and orthopedic injuries.
Beyond offering acute treatment for trauma, we provide a full range of services across the trauma continuum of care, including rehabilitation, patient/family support and injury prevention, as well as a robust research program to help improve prevention and care for trauma patients everywhere.
While you never know when trauma will arise, there are steps you can take to prevent situations that commonly lead to injury whether your at work, at home or on vacation.
Baylor Dallas has support resources available to help trauma patients and their families know what to expect and how to cope.
Comprehensive trauma services means more than emergency care. We offer rehabilitative services such as physical, speech and occupational therapy to restore quality of life.
We’re committed to finding new and innovative ways to better treat trauma patients and serve their families.
