UAMS Medical Center state’s only adult Level 1 traumacenter

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) has once again been designated  by the American College of Surgeons as the state’s only adult Level 1 Trauma Center, signifying UAMS can provide the highest level of trauma care for the most serious and urgent cases.

UAMS first achieved this Level 1 verification in 2017 after a vigorous review process.

UAMS is the only adult Level 1 trauma center in the state of Arkansas as recognized by the Arkansas Department of Health.

A Level 1 medical center must have the capability of providing leadership and total care for every aspect of injury, from prevention through rehabilitation. It also has a major responsibility for providing leadership in education, research and system planning.

The American College of Surgeons’ Verification Program was created in 1987 to promote the development of trauma centers that can provide the necessary care for trauma patients from the pre-hospital phase through the rehabilitation process.
