Vanderbilt’s Level 1 Trauma Center Celebrates 25 Years of Saving Lives
On Aug. 30, 1988, Vanderbilt became Middle Tennessee’s designated Level 1 Trauma Center, and to this day remains the region’s only hospital that meets the rigorous standards required to care for the most acutely ill patients.
Covering a 65,000-square-mile territory, 58,000 patients have been admitted to the Trauma Center over the past 25 years, including more than 25,000 motor vehicle accident victims, nearly 4,500 gunshot victims, 1,700 stabbing victims and more than 7,000 fall victims, along with a high volume of other injuries ranging from construction accidents to pedestrians hit by cars to recreational accidents.
