Trauma & Surgical Critical Care

The Section of Trauma & Surgical Critical Care at Temple University Hospital provides state-of-the-art multidisciplinary care to critically injured patients. One of the few Regional Resource Level 1 Trauma Centers in the Philadelphia area, the department holds further the distinction of being the only local trauma center with a burn program that is accredited by the American Burn Association.

Our department provides patients with priority access to a variety of hospital services, including radiology, surgery and anesthesia, 24 hours-a-day and seven days-a-week.

We also work with the Temple Transport Team, an emergency transportation team dedicated to moving victims of emergency trauma to Temple University Hospital as quickly as possible, regardless of the weather.
