SBH Health System holds the important designation of being a New York State certified Level I Trauma Center. 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.
