Trauma remains the leading cause of death and disability worldwide between
the ages of one to 44.
Over 1,300 patients are treated each year for traumatic injuries at Huntington
Hospital. Common injuries treated include stabbings, gunshot wounds, motorcycle
or bicycle crashes, car accidents, falls and many more.
Recent studies have shown that chances of survival are improved when care
of a traumatically injured patient takes place at a dedicated trauma center
committed to providing a specialized trauma team 24 hours/day.
