Trauma remains the leading cause of death and disability worldwide between the ages of one to 44.
Over 1,400 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.

Stop the Bleed
“Stop the Bleed” is a national initiative designed to provide bystanders with the tools and knowledge to stop life-threatening bleeding. Uncontrolled bleeding can result from man-made and natural disasters (e.g., active shooters, bombings, earthquakes) as well as everyday occuring emergencies (e.g. motor vehicle crashes, power tool accidents.)
For more information about the Stop the Bleed program or to request a training, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Many patients seen in our trauma center have preventable injuries. From a child’s fall on a playground to a motor vehicle collision, trauma affects us all. Though there are many deaths, more people survive their injuries, suffering life-long physical, mental and financial challenges.
We provide information, services and resources on preventable injuries.
