Trauma Survivors Network - provided by ATS

Survive. Connect. Rebuild.

A Program of the ATS

University of Virginia Health System

At UVA, our surgical critical care and trauma teams handle some of the most complex cases in the state.

We offer a comprehensive team-based approach to complex surgical care. Each of our surgeons has additional training in critical care and is qualified to handle even the most difficult cases. Surgical emergencies involving our critical care and trauma surgeons may also require the expertise of other specialists.

UVA is one of five level-one trauma centers in Virginia. We usually see patients with serious injuries, often in vehicle accidents. Patients who have suffered accidental abdominal catastrophes at other medical centers also come to UVA for emergency surgery.

Each trauma survivor has a unique journey, but you don't have to go it alone. Our program can connect you with a community of patients and families that support one another, while rebuilding their lives after a serious injury. Being a part of this Trauma Survivors Network community means you're not alone. That could help to ease the anxiety and frustration that often follows a trauma. You might find out about this network when you're recovering in the Trauma Center. Someone from the network might visit you and drop off some information about the network. We'll stop back in a few days to see if you or family is interested in our services. (Volunteer Peer Visitation Program) Learn more
