Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota Receive Level III Trauma Designation
Date:7/27/2009

MINNEAPOLIS and ST. PAUL, Minn., July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Minnesota Department of Health recently designated Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota's two hospital locations as Level III Trauma Hospitals. Children's of Minnesota has the sixth busiest pediatric emergency department in the nation with over 84,000 visits per year, and already treats around 450 trauma cases each year.

This designation will help us deliver that care even more effectively to more families.

For a severely injured person, the time between sustaining an injury and receiving definitive care is the most important predictor of survival. The Level III Trauma designation for Children's means children who are severely injured will have a better chance of being able to get the critical care they need in a timely manner.
