Our therapy and physiatry colleagues have experience in the recovery of these injured patients.

The Trauma Program at UHS is here for you and your family, 24 hours a day, if you ever need care for a traumatic injury or illness.  You can count on our Trauma Team to respond with the latest expertise, technology and commitment to provide you with the best in diagnosis and treatment.

Trauma Services & Injury Prevention | United Health Services (nyuhs.org)

Traumatic injury is the leading cause of death for people under the age of 44, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Annually, approximately 1,900 injured patients arrive at UHS Wilson Medical Center’s Emergency Department to be treated for a wide range of traumatic injuries including life-threatening falls, injuries from vehicular crashes, blunt force trauma, penetrating wounds and industrial incidents. That’s a volume of 5 trauma patients per day.
The good news is that many traumatic injuries can be prevented, beginning with awareness and education. The UHS Trauma Services & Injury Prevention team is continuously studying how injuries happen and looking for ways to help prevent them. Our goal is to reduce the incidence of death and disability in our community.
