Level II Pediatric Trauma Center

Children’s Hospital New Orleans is recognized by the American College of Surgeons as a Level II Pediatric Trauma Center, making it the only verified Pediatric Trauma Center serving Greater New Orleans, and one of only three in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast region.

Our Level II Trauma Center is able to initiate definitive care for all injured patients, such as children involved in motor vehicle accidents, violence, abuse, or other serious trauma events. The Children's Hospital Level II Trauma Center includes 24-hour immediate coverage by pediatric trauma surgeons, as well as coverage by the specialties of orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, radiology, and critical care.

Children's Hospital New Orleans is outfitted with an expanded pediatric-only Emergency Department with two dedicated trauma bays with immediate access to state of the art surgical facilities, including 12 new operating rooms.

Each year the Trauma Team, in collaboration with other hospital services, treats a significant number of patients for various traumatic injuries. Check out our statistics below.
