Level IV Trauma Center

A Level IV Trauma Center provides the important first steps in the care of a trauma patient: initial evaluation, stabilization, diagnostics, and when appropriate, transfer to a higher level of care. The State of Arizona, along with many others, has formed this trauma center coordination program in order to improve trauma care on every level, and NCCH is proud to be part of the program.

Our emergency department was state certified as a Level IV Trauma Center on December 4, 2008. NCCH was the third facility in the state to accomplish this certification! In 2015, the emergency department participated in recertification for the Level IV Trauma designation; we passed with NO deficiencies!
