What It Means to Be a Level II Trauma Center


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 45 million individuals in the United States do not have access to a Level I or II trauma center within one hour travel radius. To put that into perspective, 45 million individuals is equivalent to the populations of Arizona, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Alabama combined! Fortunately for Thousand Oaks residents, Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center is home to the only Level II trauma center in East Ventura County.

A trauma center is a hospital or emergency room that has additional equipment and medical resources to care for severely injured patients. These centers are classified as Level I, II, III, or IV. The emergency room at Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center is fully equipped to provide experienced and specialized treatment to patients suffering from traumatic injuries using a multidisciplinary approach. Our 24/7 trauma team works in conjunction with the on-site emergency medical staff (EMS) team to ensure that all treatments are initiated as quickly as possible—whether our patients arrive by ambulance or helicopter.
