A trauma system is an organized response to managing and improving the care of severely injured people. It spans the continuum-of-care from prevention, pre-hospital care, acute care to rehabilitation. It has been established to ensure that injured people are promptly transported to and treated at facilities appropriate to the severity of their injury. A trauma system also provides a foundation for disaster preparedness and response. As part of its day-to-day activities, a trauma system coordinates the movement and care of severely injured people.

Vision: All patients in South Dakota needing trauma services receive high quality, readily accessible, and well coordinated services.

Mission: Establish an inclusive, statewide trauma system that reduces overall morbidity and mortality through coordinated prevention, pre-hospital and hospital care services.
