Level IV Trauma Center

CHI St. Joseph’s Health Emergency Department participates in Minnesota’s statewide trauma system. We have met the standards and commitments, equipment resources, and staff training to receive the Level IV Trauma Center designation.
Trauma patients are treated following approved protocols consistent from hospital to hospital throughout the state.

Being part of a statewide trauma system ensures that severely injured people are promptly transported and treated at trauma hospitals appropriate to the severity of their injuries. The goal is to match the needs of the patient with the resources of the facility as quickly as possible. Based on specific criteria and system support, patients can be treated at CHI St. Joseph’s Health and, when necessary, patients who require greater resources are stabilized and transferred elsewhere.
