Trauma

SBH Health System holds the important designation of being an American College of Surgeons designated Level II Trauma Program. With more than 1,200 trauma patients a year, it is one of the Bronx’s busiest trauma centers, providing the highest level of care, around-the-clock, for injured patients.

The trauma team consists of full-time trauma and critical care surgeons, available 24 hours a day. They work with experts in oral & maxillofacial, orthopedics, plastic, neurosurgery, hand, ENT, urologic, cardiothoracic and vascular surgery. The team also collaborates with a full staff of surgery residents, emergency physicians, nurses, physician assistants and social workers.

Our trauma team has earned an excellent reputation for providing reliable and accurate care for both adults and children – when seconds count!

In addition to caring for trauma patients, our Trauma Center is committed to reducing injuries in our community by providing injury prevention programs for children, adults and senior citizens.

New York City Police and Fire Departments have honored our Trauma Center for its life-saving role in the treatment of their colleagues injured in the line of duty.

SBH Health System Trauma Center has also been recognized by the media. It has been featured on 911: The Bronx, a six-part Discovery Channel documentary, and Extreme A&E, a British documentary series.
