The trauma center at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland has been verified as Level 1 by the American College of Surgeons.

Children’s is the only Bay Area free-standing children’s hospital with a Level 1 trauma center and is one of four such pediatric trauma centers in California.

The voluntary verification involves reviews of all aspects of trauma care, including the emergency room, surgery, intensive care, rehabilitation, injury prevention and outreach education.
