Trauma hospitals play a critical role in providing specialized care to individuals with severe injuries and life-threatening conditions. Find valuable information about the trauma hospital designation process, eligibility criteria, and application requirements. Hospitals interested in becoming part of the state's trauma system or renewing their designation can access the necessary forms, guidelines, and instructions to navigate the application process.

Please fill out and return to the state trauma system manager at least 6 weeks prior to either your scheduled designation visit or your trauma designation expiration date. Please use the earlier of the two dates as your guide.
