Level III Trauma Center

Level III trauma center and emergency room near you

Frankfort Regional Medical Center is proud to serve our community as a designated level III trauma center, one of only four in Kentucky. As verified by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), a level III trauma center has demonstrated an ability to provide prompt assessment, resuscitation and stabilization of critically or seriously injured patients. An expansion of our ER, the trauma care center offers our community the highest level of emergency care when it matters most.

Key elements of a level III trauma center include 24-hour immediate coverage by emergency medicine physicians and the prompt availability of surgeons and anesthesiologists. Our level III trauma program is dedicated to continued improvement in emergency care through a comprehensive quality assessment program once a patient is admitted into our ER. The level III trauma center has developed transfer agreements for patients requiring more comprehensive care at a level I or level II trauma center.

No matter what the reason, our trauma experts are here for you and your family.
