LG Health Physicians
Trauma & Acute Care Surgery
Lancaster General Hospital is the only accredited Level II Trauma Center in Lancaster County, and has been for over two decades.
Patient care at LG Health Physicians Trauma & Acute Care Surgery often begins before the patient arrives. While transporting the patient by ambulance, the pre-hospital providers will call the ED to alert the ED physician of the patient’s condition and vital signs. The ED physician will quickly activate a trauma response team that will be led by our in-house trauma surgeon.
From the ED and surgery, through recovery, discharge and follow-up visits at the trauma clinic, a dedicated trauma team cares for each patient, ensuring the highest quality treatment and a smooth transition through every stage of care.
