If you are gravely ill, stabbed or are in a major car accident in Oakland, the nurses and doctors in Highland Hospital’s emergency room and trauma center will work to save your life. The emergency room at Highland is the busiest in Alameda County, with more than 85,000 visits annually with about 80 percent checking into the hospital. What’s more, in 2009, the last year for which data was available, more than 2,500 trauma patients were treated at the hospital’s trauma center.
