Florida's First in Trauma Care

Image: TraumaOne Logo

When UF Health TraumaOne began in 1983, it was the first trauma program in the state of Florida. Today, it is still the only adult and pediatric Level I trauma program in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia.

On any given day, anyone can end up a patient in the TraumaOne trauma center. Ordinary activities – picking up the kids from school, painting the house, walking the dog – can turn into a life-or-death situation in the blink of an eye.

Expertise You Won't Find Anywhere Else

TraumaOne's highly qualified staff consists of University of Florida acute care surgeons, UF Health Jacksonville nurses and others with extensive training in caring for trauma patients. Unlike other hospitals in the area, surgeons and other health care professionals in areas such as neurosurgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthopaedic trauma surgery and cardiothoracic surgery are available on campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The UF Health TraumaOne program consists of four integrated components:

  • Trauma center
  • Flight services
  • Communications/dispatch
  • Trauma prevention and education

The state's trauma programs are governed by a strict set of standards set by the Florida Department of Health. Every three years, TraumaOne undergoes a site visit in order to maintain its Level I trauma center accreditation. It is a rigorous review of every aspect of the program.
