Penn Medicine’s Level I Trauma Center: From Helipad to Trauma Bay within 70 Seconds


The effects of trauma are amplified by every second that passes between the moment of trauma and the emergency room. At Penn Medicine’s Level I Trauma Center, patients arriving to the rooftop helipad are transported by elevator to the trauma bay within 70 seconds. The Trauma Center is now the anchor for the Pavilion for Advanced Care at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.
