The VCU Medical Center’s Division of Trauma, Critical Care and Emergency Surgery has received re-verification from the American College of Surgeons as a nationally recognized Level

The VCU Medical Center is the only health care provider in Central Virginia, and one of only two in the state, to receive the Level I trauma center designation.
