Level 1 Trauma Center

Saint Paul’s only Level 1 Trauma Center – nationally recognized care for the most serious injuries

Top-quality trauma care, all in one place

Regions Hospital was the first hospital in Minnesota to be verified as both a Level 1 Adult and Pediatric Trauma Center. That means we were the first to meet strict standards for providing adults and kids with the highest level of care. We’re the only Level 1 Trauma Center in the east Twin Cities metro, serving the Upper Midwest. And we’re one of just three Level 1 Trauma Centers in the Twin Cities that can take care of your family in one place.

Board certified trauma doctors, emergency specialists and nurses are on staff 24 hours a day to help people in the Twin Cities and western Wisconsin. Our care team includes internationally recognized trauma surgeons and specialists in burn, spine, orthopedics, neurosurgery and more. It even includes mental health professionals who are specially trained to help you and your family cope during a crisis.

Pediatric trauma and continuing care for kids at Gillette

If your child is injured, come to the emergency center. Our pediatric trauma team will treat them right away. The Regions Hospital emergency center includes our Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center.

We partner with Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare to provide the highest level of care possible for your child. It’s located just down the hall on the Regions Hospital campus. Kids who get care in the emergency center are admitted to Gillette for ongoing care and rehabilitation. The trauma surgeons and specialists who cared for them when they first arrived continue to care for them. From treatment to rehabilitation, they get expert care all in one place.

Critical Care Research Center

Research sets Regions Hospital apart. We’re always looking at how we can make your care – and recovery – even better. That’s why our traumatic injury doctors conduct clinical research in eight specialty areas. These include emergency medicine, emergency medical services, intensive care and trauma. Research helps us improve care. And we share our results nationally so that other hospitals keep getting better, too.
