Legacy Emanuel Medical Center
At Legacy Health, we do what is right — for our employees, our patients, our communities and our world.
That means helping people get healthy and stay that way. It also means encouraging medical professionals to set a higher standard. Tending to the little things that help patients heal. And supporting our staff to do whatever it takes to meet the needs of those we serve. But it's not just what we do, it's why we do it. At Legacy, our fundamental responsibility is to improve the wellness of everyone we touch, to empower people to live healthier lives and to create a legacy that truly lives on.
Patients with immediate, critical medical needs in the Portland-Vancouver area and across the region receive the finest care available at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. We feature a Level I Trauma Center, the highest level possible, with life-saving capabilities for serious injuries and illnesses.
Legacy Emanuel provides a complete system for receiving these patients, including a heliport for the emergency helicopters to deliver patients from across the region. Our full-time surgeons are leaders in the statewide trauma system. Along with other private practice surgeons, they provide around-the-clock care at our trauma center. We also send surgery teams to hospitals with patients who cannot be moved.
We are verified by the American College of Surgeons, the highest designation for trauma care. We collect data from trauma cases in the Legacy Trauma Registry to improve our care. In addition, doctors and researchers use these data in our Trauma Registry, and we work with other Level I and II trauma centers in research activities, exchanging data from our registry.
