In February 2016, NYU Winthrop Hospital’s Trauma Center was verified as an adult Level 1 Trauma Center – the highest rating a trauma center can receive. This verification was earned by meeting the stringent criteria established by the American College of Surgeons for a Level 1 Trauma Center.
A Level I Trauma Center is a comprehensive regional resource that is a tertiary care facility central to the trauma system. A Level I Trauma Center is capable of providing total care for every aspect of injury – from prevention through rehabilitation.
