Indiana Trauma Hospitals
Injury is the leading cause of death for Hoosiers between the ages of 1 and 34. More than 95,000 Hoosiers are hospitalized for injuries—and more than 5,000 die—each year. Because trauma care requires special training and equipment, only a limited number of hospitals are prepared to deliver life-saving care on a 24-hour basis. Currently, there are 25 American College of Surgeons-certified trauma hospitals in Indiana which includes 23 current and 2 "in-process" trauma centers. View more about Indiana's trauma centers here.
