Minnesota Statewide Trauma System

Trauma is the third leading cause of death in Minnesota. On average, trauma claims the lives of 2,400 Minnesotans annually. A comprehensive statewide trauma system has been responsible for increasing survival rates by 15 to 20 percent in states where it has been implemented.

And now, as of August 2005, Minnesota has its own comprehensive statewide trauma system. The goal of the trauma system is to decrease injured patients' time to definitive care by ensuring that patients' medical needs are appropriately matched with hospitals' resources.

Participation in the statewide trauma system remains voluntary. But wide-scale participation will ensure that a statewide, cooperative effort is in place to care for seriously injured patients.
