Traumatic injury is a leading cause of disability, death and financial distress in the United States. From a motor vehicle crash to a child's fall on a playground, trauma affects us all. Most unintentional injuries and deaths are preventable. The goal of our Injury Prevention Program at Orange Regional Medical Center is to identify, try to eliminate the causes of preventable injury, unsafe behaviors, conditions and environments, thereby preventing unintentional injuries and deaths.
As part of our goals on the journey to becoming a designated Level II Trauma Center, we will continually evolve to meet the changing trends of traumatic injuries and the needs of our community. Every year, the Injury Prevention Program looks for trends in the types of trauma we treat to determine which areas would benefit from new programming or increased priority.
Through our close partnership with Emergency Medical Services, Orange Regional is able to provide expert care to our trauma patients beginning in the field and throughout the course of the hospitalization.
