Trauma and Acute Care Surgery (TRACS)
Salem Hospital has one of the largest and most advanced trauma and acute care surgery departments in Oregon.
Our team excels at caring for critically injured and ill patients. We used evidence-based medical practices and advanced surgical techniques
to provide the best care for our community.
We are a Certified Level II Trauma Center with a dedicated trauma ICU, staffed by experienced trauma surgical intensivists. We have specialties such as vascular, plastics, neurosurgery, and orthopedics available for our trauma patients. We have dedicated acute care surgeons available 24/7 to meet all emergency surgical needs in our hospitalized and ER patients.
Our team of surgical intensivists manage our surgical ICU. Our surgeons stay in-house, providing immediate care during your hospital stay — a service unique to Salem Hospital. For continuity, your trauma follow-up and post-operative care
are provided by surgeons in our outpatient clinic.
