• Critical blood shortage

    Trauma centers in Michigan, and across the U.S., are facing a severe blood shortage due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations in response to the coronavirus outbreak. Healthy individuals are urgently needed to donate and to help patients counting on lifesaving blood. The blood shortage is so dire it could mean a crisis for Michigan communities if unrelieved.

  • It starts here

    Trauma caregivers know that trauma care does not start in the emergency department. It starts in the vehicle, the street, the home, the sporting arena, or wherever injuries occur. Improving trauma care means working closely with emergency responders and medical control authorities to help ensure that patients get the most appropriate care in the shortest time.

    Pediatric trauma

    Caring for pediatric trauma patients requires special knowledge and management. There are a limited number of pediatric trauma centers in our state, so every hospital must educate its staff and providers in the initial care of injured children who arrive in their emergency departments.
