Injury Prevention and Community Outreach

The Elliot’s Level II Trauma Center provides 24-hour-a-day critical care services to Manchester and surrounding areas.


The Emergency Department serves as a community resource and referral center for all regional trauma-related cases. As a reflection of its size and depth of resources, the Elliot Trauma Center is verified by the state of American College of Surgeons as a Level II program.

Our team of dedicated experts collaborates to provide optimal care for sick and injured patients at the Elliot Emergency Department. They are committed to helping patients access the appropriate level of care in a safe, timely, and coordinated manner. They guide the patient through a seamless transition between each phase of care, integrating existing resources to deliver superior evidence-based care and achieve positive patient outcomes.

Our Approach

In addition, throughout The Elliot, nurses in the Emergency Department, OR, and ICU receive specialized training in trauma care and many of our nurses have achieved national recognition in Trauma, Emergency, Operative and Critical Care. Our staff keeps up-to-date on the latest advances in the care of trauma victims. In addition, the Elliot serves as the resource hospital for thirteen local Emergency Medical Service providers.
