Level III Trauma Center

Excellence in Emergency Services.

“The nurses in Aspirus Medford Hospital's emergency room didn’t give up. I know they went above and beyond what they should have done.” - Brenda

The State of Wisconsin designated Aspirus Medford Hospital a Level III Trauma Care Facility.

Requirements for Level III designation include 24-hour-a-day coverage by trauma-trained surgeons, emergency department physicians, and nurses, as well as 24-hour-a-day access to anesthesia, laboratory, and radiology services.

As a Critical Access Hospital, Aspirus Medford Hospital's designation as a Level III facility is unique and exceeds standards. Most other Critical Access Hospitals in Wisconsin achieve a lesser, Level IV classification.

Traumatic injury is the leading cause of death and disability in people ages one to 34 years in Wisconsin, and it is the fourth leading cause of death among people of all ages nationwide.

Level I and II facilities are capable of providing complete care for even the most severe of traumas. Level III facilities - like Aspirus Medford Hospital - are capable of providing assessment, resuscitation, stabilization, emergency surgery, and, if necessary, transfer to a Level I or II facility. Level IV facilities only provide stabilization and advanced trauma life support prior to patient transfer to a Level I or II facility.
