Trauma Services at EMMC

EMMC is an American College of Surgeons verified Level II Trauma Center and host of LifeFlight of Maine, a statewide medical helicopter service that transports critically ill and injured patients. EMMC is also part of the Maine Trauma System (MTS). The MTS is a unique, voluntary system involving all of Maine's hospitals and emergency medical service providers. This system offers a comprehensive, statewide approach to trauma with protocols followed by all community EMS providers and hospitals.

EMMC trauma teams triage incoming patients by radio and then execute hospital-wide trauma team activation to mobilize the appropriate personnel to meet the injured patient. In keeping with its mission as a regional trauma resource, the EMMC Trauma Program offers outreach visits and works with other hospitals in the region to improve trauma patient care. By sharing expertise between clinical professionals we boost the region's overall response to trauma incidents.
