Marshfield Medical Center – Eau Claire Earns Level III Trauma Designation

Feb. 24, 2021​

Marshfield Medical Center-Eau Claire has been designated as a Level III Trauma Center by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services after consistently demonstrating its ability to provide advanced trauma life support, evaluation, stabilization and diagnostic services as part of Wisconsin's integrated system of trauma care.

"This designation is an example of how Marshfield Medical Center-Eau Claire is committed to serving our community and the Chippewa Valley region," said Bill Priest, chief administrative officer for Marshfield Medical Center-Eau Claire. "We opened this hospital in July 2018, and I am very proud of the efforts and commitment our Emergency Department and local medical staff showed in earning this designation. There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into training, resourcing and making sure we meet the stringent standards set forth by the State to achieve a Level III Trauma designation. It is a testament to the excellent care this team provides to critically ill and injured patients needing life-saving care around the clock, every day of the year."

Level III Trauma Centers provide assessment, resuscitation, stabilization, and emergency surgery to critically ill or injured patients. Patients who require more comprehensive care are managed and stabilized before being transferred to a Level I or Level II Trauma Center. In 2020, less than 5% of Marshfield Medical Center-Eau Claire trauma patients required being transferred to a higher level trauma center. As part of its Level III status, Marshfield Medical Center-Eau Claire provides educational opportunities in trauma care for the community including Stop the Bleed training, First Aid Safety Booths at area events, car seat and bike helmet replacement program for those involved in accidents, and various prevention education and screening events.
