JPS Trauma Services

Our One Focus

JPS Health Network is the leader in trauma care for Tarrant County. Our trauma center has received Level I verification and designation - making JPS the only Level I Trauma Center in Tarrant County. This designation means no other hospital in Tarrant County can handle trauma patients better than JPS.

Our dedication to superior trauma care is critical to the health of Tarrant County. We know trauma is the leading cause of death for those under the age of 44 (source: CDC). That is why we have committed more resources than any other local hospital to saving the lives of trauma victims.

About Level I

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) reviews hospitals ability to provide trauma care. The organization looks at resources available such as equipment, personnel and access to physicians in specialized fields, such as neurosurgeons. ACS surveyors perform a review of what a hospital has available and its capabilities. Learn more about what Level I means by visiting http://www.facs.org/trauma/verificationhosp.html.
