Phoenix Children’s is Arizona’s only American College of Surgeons-verified Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center with fully-trained, board-certified surgeons who have additional fellowship training in pediatric surgery, meaning your child gets the best trauma care available in the state.
Should the unfortunate happen and your child is critically injured, at Phoenix Children’s, you can be assured your child is getting pediatric-specific trauma care. This is extremely important as children who receive treatment at a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center, like ours, lower their risk of death by 25% compared to non-trauma centers, have better outcomes and shorter lengths of stay than at other hospitals that don’t have pediatric trauma programs. Why?
Because we're trained to meet the unique needs of children dealing with traumatic injuries and illnesses. We have designated staff for children, making sure they have 24/7 physician specialist coverage for their immediate needs. And our trauma center physicians, nurses and other staff are trained to serve the unique medical needs of children in an environment focused exclusively on children and their families, in the toughest of times.
