FirstLight Health System recently became recognized by the Minnesota Department of Health as a designated trauma center. For a severely injured person, the time between sustaining an injury and receiving definitive care is the most important predictor of survival—the “golden hour.” The chance of survival diminishes with time; however, a trauma system enhances the chance of survival regardless of proximity to an urban trauma hospital. Through its designation FirstLight Health System recognizes the vital role that communities, ambulance services, hospitals and health care professionals play in the care and management of trauma patients.
