Trauma Services

The Florida Department of Health has designated Aventura Hospital and Medical Center as a Level II trauma center. The approval of a trauma center provides a needed access point for trauma care in northern Miami-Dade County that will facilitate life-saving trauma services for its residents and visitors. Aventura Hospital and Medical Center is part of Florida’s first statewide network of trauma centers, developed as an affiliation between the University of South Florida (USF) and HCA to improve access and outcomes of injured patients.
