Trauma Follow-Up Care

Release from Our Hospital, Not from Our Care

The continuity of your care begins the moment you enter our Level I Trauma Center and moves forward with you as you get better.

After you leave the hospital, our caring staff provides trauma follow-up care in our clinic to check the progress of your recovery. We are here to encourage you in your return to life before injury and answer questions about wound care, therapy, medications and any school or work restrictions. We also have a specialized Pediatric Trauma & Burn Follow-Up clinic to care for the specific needs of our pediatric patients.

Prevention Is the Only Cure for Trauma

We also use this time in the clinic to focus on future injury prevention. The trauma team at University Health System is dedicated to minimizing re-injury in our patients and preventing new injuries in our community. We do this through educational opportunities designed to promote child and adult safety and eliminate traumatic incidents.
