UMC Level 1 Trauma Center

In 1993, UMC Health System became the first facility in Texas to receive the Texas Department of Health’s Level I Trauma designation. This designation, in combination with our UMC Children’s Hospital being a Level II Pediatric Trauma Center, makes UMC the only hospital system within 400 miles to hold both distinctions. We are the region’s trusted choice for care.

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 West Texas and Eastern New Mexico, all of this means UMC provides the most sophisticated and comprehensive trauma care available.
