Level I Trauma Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment
St. Anthony Hospital is a Level I Trauma Center and provides the highest level of care for Colorado Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) patients. This designation is critical for TBI patients requiring brain surgery as a result of brain injury and trauma. The Level I designation assures that trauma surgeons, critical care physicians, anesthesiologists, radiologists, CT techs and technological resources are ready at all times to provide critical, life saving care for brain injury patients.
Neurosurgeons from InterMountain Neurosurgery & Neuroscience are on-call and available 24 hours-a-day and our specialized trauma team works closely with EMS responders, communicating about the incoming TBI patient so staff and resources are ready as soon as the patient arrives.
Our Severe Traumatic Brain Injury Team of Nurses work on a one to one basis with families, doctors and TBI patients. These brain injury patients are the sickest of the sick, and these nurses manage their care wonderfully, going everywhere the TBI patient goes.
St. Anthony Hospital's T-10, Colorado's first dedicated trauma-operating suite, enables seriously injured patients to go directly to surgery upon their arrival with EMS. This gives us the ability to address traumatic brain injuries immediately, giving us valuable lifesaving minutes that make all the difference when it comes to brain trauma.
St. Anthony Hospital is a proud sponsor of The Brain Injury Association of Colorado, an organization providing support and resources for survivors of TBI in Colorado and their families. To learn more visit The Brain Injury Association of Colorado...
