Every year, injuries hospitalize more than 95,000 Hoosiers. About 5,000 of those patients don’t survive their injuries.
In many trauma cases, the difference between life and death is a matter of time. To meet the need for prompt care of the injured patient, St.Vincent developed the Trauma Center at the Indianapolis campus. With our StatFlight helicopter fleet, the St.Vincent Trauma Center is equipped to provide patients age 15 and older the specialized lifesaving care they need as quickly as possible.
More than half of all trauma cases involve orthopedics. Therefore, it’s important to trust a trauma team that can tackle even the toughest orthopedic cases. In Indianapolis, that means trusting the St.Vincent Trauma Center. All eight OrthoIndy trauma surgeons are now aligned exclusively with the St.Vincent Trauma Center. The OrthoIndy trauma specialists bring decades of combined experience to St.Vincent. Over the years, they have treated some of the toughest trauma cases in the country. We’re happy to have their expertise in providing excellent, compassionate care for our patients. So when you bring a patient to us, you’ll know they will be treated by the most experienced and skilled orthopedic trauma surgeons in Indiana.
