Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region
Each day, Sutter Roseville Medical Center’s Trauma Center responds to life-threatening injuries that require immediate, specialized treatment. Of all trauma centers nationwide, Sutter Roseville is among the 25 percent to successfully complete the rigorous verification survey conducted by the American College of Surgeons and is recognized as meeting the organization’s most stringent requirements for trauma center quality.
Sutter Roseville’s Level II Trauma Center serves a large, seven-county region that includes Placer, Nevada, Sutter, Yolo, Yuba and portions of Sacramento and El Dorado counties. Its partnership with CALSTAR (California Shock/Trauma Air Rescue), a non-profit community organization that provides emergency medical helicopter services, is supported by a helipad adjacent to the emergency department for immediate access to care. Critical care is provided in a Trauma/Neuro Intensive Care Unit by highly trained surgical intensivists, a subgroup of the trauma surgery group. In addition to trauma surgeons, board-certified radiologists, anesthesiologists, surgical nurses and technical specialists are onsite 24 hours every day to assure immediate care. Because trauma is a surgical condition, the care of each patient is managed directly by a surgeon who acts as the single reference point for all information and decisions. Architectural specialists and trauma staff familiar with the high-speed operation of a trauma unit designed the center for optimum function. In addition to the nearby helipad, the unit is located in close proximity to the emergency department, radiology and critical care areas, and two spacious, well-equipped resuscitation rooms with in-room radiology equipment. The unit also utilizes high-speed CT scanners and an open-bore MRI system to allow physicians to respond rapidly to all patient needs.
