Patients with traumatic injuries have their best chance at survival when treated at a Level I Trauma Center. A national study that included six North Carolina hospitals found the overall risk of death is 25 percent lower when care is provided at high level trauma centers, compared to hospitals without trauma centers.Level I Trauma centers have equipment and onsite experts to treat life-threatening injuries 24 hours a day. The National Study on the Costs and Outcomes of Trauma included 18 hospitals with Level I trauma centers (the highest level of care) and 51 hospitals without trauma centers, located in 14 states. Within one year after injury, the rate of death was significantly lower for patients cared for at trauma centers (10.4 percent versus 13.8 percent for non-trauma centers).
