Pali Momi Medical Center is one of only two adult trauma centers on the island of Oahu and the only Level III Trauma Center serving Central and West Oahu. This means we’re able to provide life-saving care sooner for those in our communities who are suffering from major traumatic injuries.
The trauma center designation means we have a demonstrated ability to provide prompt assessment, resuscitation, surgery, intensive care and stabilization of injured patients. Our dedicated trauma team is comprised of ER nurses, physicians and surgeons with specialized training so they are better prepared to care for you and your loved ones if you are severely injured. We have a process in place so our team is ready to meet trauma patients upon arrival in the Emergency Department and immediately provide assessment and care.
Our teams also are actively involved in trauma prevention outreach programs and work to educate the people of our communities.
We are the first American College of Surgeons-verified Level III Trauma Center in the state of Hawaii. This recognition by the world’s largest association of surgeons confirms that we have demonstrated our commitment to providing the highest quality trauma care for all injured patients.
