About the Center

The mission of The Elliot Level II Trauma Center is to provide immediate care and on-going intervention to patients suffering from a critical condition. It is very often the first contact a patient will have with Elliot Hospital after the sudden onset of serious illness or traumatic injury. The Level II Trauma Center team consists of specialists in nearly 20 disciplines that respond upon notification by EMS prior to the patient reaching the hospital. In consultation with the Emergency Department physician, first responders will begin procedures prior to arrival at the hospital. Other patients arrive for care as "walk-ins" or with the assistance of family or friends.

The Elliot Level II Trauma Center provides twenty-four hour a day critical care services to Manchester and surrounding areas. The Elliot therefore serves as a community resource and referral center for all regional trauma related cases and serves a vast number of patients. Approximately 1000 major trauma cases are seen each year. 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.
