In 1986, The Charles C. Wolferth Trauma Center at Hahnemann University Hospital became the first designated Level I Trauma Center for adults in Philadelphia. From the time patients enter into our system in the trauma resuscitation area, through to the planning of their discharge, a variety of specialists are dedicated to providing state of the art primary care. In addition to our emergency physicians, trauma surgeons, orthopedists, neurosurgeons and other specialty practitioners, many critical care trained registered nurses, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, radiology technicians, dieticians and other specialists are on duty and available round the clock to serve Philadelphia and surrounding communities. The trauma center physicians and staff are dedicated to achieving excellence in the care of all trauma patients, the teaching of attending physicians, residents and students, and in researching conditions affecting patient care and teaching Hahnemann plays an important role in the community, not only through resuscitation and acute care of trauma patients, but also in providing educational opportunities to providers serving Philadelphia and the surrounding counties.
