- Trauma surgical services
- Laboratory needs

Orange Regional's Trauma Center is recognized by the New York State Department of Health and is currently working under the guidelines of the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma to become a Verified Trauma Center. We have the staffing, facilities and procedures needed to provide comprehensive, coordinated care for the most severe illnesses and injuries.
When You Arrive at Our Trauma Center
Conveniently located and easy to access, our Emergency Department offers designated rooms for trauma services and devoted rooms for children’s emergent care. Upon your arrival, a severely-injured trauma patient will go directly to one of our fully-equipped, dedicated trauma bays housed in a special treatment area of the Emergency Department.
Through prompt evaluation and resuscitation, using state-of-the-art equipment, life-threatening injuries can be diagnosed rapidly and immediately treated under the direction of one of our Board-certified trauma surgeons. When necessary, the patient can be transported within minutes to the operating room.
Should a patient be in need of a higher level trauma care, our team will coordinate the patients care and transportation to another facility in our region.
In any emergency situation, please remember to call 911.
