Traumatic Injury


A traumatic injury is usually caused by a life-threatening event, such as a severe car accident, bad fall or gunshot wound. Because a patient’s life may be at stake, a traumatic injury can affect not only the body, but the mind and spirit as well.

For immediate, expert medical care, you can count on the specialists at Mercy clinics and trauma centers. Our coordinated, team approach means that from emergency transport to a quick and accurate assessment of your condition, you’ll receive the best care possible.

After you go through initial treatment at a Mercy clinic or trauma center, we follow up with ongoing treatment by trained specialists and therapists from across our network. We’ll coordinate a long-term treatment plan with your primary care doctor, then work together all the way through your recovery and rehabilitation.

And Mercy treats you as a whole person – as a patient who has needs beyond physical healing. As you begin your recovery, we reach out with counseling and compassionate support.

A traumatic injury can change your life. Our goal is to help you and your family cope with these changes, and return to living life to its fullest.
