Two Hartford hospitals to run top-level trauma center

Hartford Courant, October 31, 2008

A trauma center run jointly by Connecticut Children's Medical Center and Hartford Hospital has become the state's third Level 1 trauma facility. The Trauma Institute combines the work of both hospitals' trauma programs and standardizes their practices, staff training and evaluations. Until The Trauma Institute received the designation, Yale-New Haven Hospital and Hartford Hospital were the state's only Level 1 trauma facilities, and only Yale- New Haven was designated for both adults and children.
