In addition to treating injuries from trauma, St. Mary Regional Trauma Center is committed to preventing injures in our community. Our Trauma Prevention Coordinator reviews the trends seen in the trauma center, utilizing the trauma registry and develops programs to try to prevent those injuries from occurring. The trauma team partners with many other hospital departments and additional community agencies to implement injury prevention programs on a local and state level. Programs are designed to address various age groups including our children, adolescents, adults and older adults.
