Marshfield Children's Hospital trauma care is at a level you'd expect from large cities. Our Level II Pediatric Trauma Center meets all criteria to be designated by American College of Surgeons (ACS). We are one of the few ACS designated pediatric trauma centers in Wisconsin.
What makes a Level II trauma center?
As a Level II trauma center, Marshfield Children's Hospital provides total care for every aspect of traumatic injury from prevention through rehabilitation, including research.
American College of Surgeons (ACS) has five levels of trauma centers: Level I, II, III, IV and Unclassified. Level I is ACS' highest level of trauma care. Unclassified locations are hospitals that choose not to be a part of the trauma care system or have not been approved as a Level I, II, III or IV.
Wisconsin Department of Health Services provides additional definitions on each level of trauma care:
