Our Level II trauma center in Southern Nevada

A trauma victim's care is a critical emergency. When trauma patients arrive at Sunrise Hospital, a team of physicians, nurses and appropriate support staff assemble and prepare for rapid assessment and treatment. We have received the American College of Surgeons’ Level II trauma verification because of our demonstrated leadership in the treatment of traumatic injuries and other life-threatening conditions. We are a regional referral center from other medical facilities and we provide advanced tertiary medical services for thousands of patients. Sunrise also serves as a lead trauma facility for Southern Nevada while working closely with neighboring states to provide trauma treatment.
