The Best Care for the Worst Situations

Our staff and facility is equipped and ready for the most serious trauma situations.

Level 2 Trauma Center

The Trauma Center at Theda Clark Medical Center is the longest continuously verified Level II trauma center in Northeast Wisconsin. We’ve earned this verification because our Trauma Center provides:

  • 24-hour coverage by board-certified emergency medical physicians and specialists in trauma surgery, neurosurgery, neurology, orthopedic surgery, cardiology, cardiovascular surgery, plastic surgery, and ophthalmic surgery
  • A partnership with Children’s Hospital of WI-Fox Valley to provide pediatric trauma specialists
  • Cardiac surgery, hemodialysis, and microvascular surgery
  • Continuing education to EMS and referring hospital team members and a commitment to trauma prevention
  • A dedication to advancing trauma care through a comprehensive quality improvement program

Effective Trauma Care

No matter what the situation, our staff provides the most concentrated and sophisticated level of care. We approach multiple-injury trauma by calling a Trauma Blue, which alerts and gathers our extensive trauma team. Working together as one unit, the team of about 14 people comes together to provide the needed skills and assessments to stabilize patients and give them the best outcome possible.
