In 1993, UMC Health System became the first facility in Texas to receive the Texas Department of Health's Level I Trauma designation. We are very proud of this designation and remain the region's only Level I Trauma Center today.
As a Level I Trauma Center, UMC has a fully trained team of staff members in all areas of the hospital ready to respond and care for trauma patients 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Our partnership with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center ensures
our 20-bed Trauma and Surgical ICU is staffed with surgeons to provide surgical care for the injured patient—including trauma surgeons, critical care coverage, burn surgeons, neurosurgery, vascular surgery, plastic surgery and facial trauma.
For the residents of this West Texas and Eastern New Mexico, all of this means UMC provides the most sophisticated and comprehensive trauma care available.
