Welcome to the home page for Emergency
Services at UNC Hospitals!
We are pleased that you are on our site to gain more information on our
services. UNC Hospitals serves the people of North Carolina as a
major statewide referral center and designated Level I Trauma Center.
We are one of only five Level I Trauma Centers in the state.
Health care providers and hospitals throughout North Carolina and
the surrounding region send patients to UNC Hospitals for the high
levels of specialty and tertiary care provided.
It is an exciting time for our services
as we grow and evolve to meet the needs of our patients and
community. Currently, we are pursuing designation as a pediatric
trauma center in addition to our designation as an adult level 1 trauma
center. We are also actively seeking designation as a Chest Pain
Center. Recently, our hospital received recognition as an AHA
Gold Award recipient for our care of STEMI patients as well as
designation by Joint Commission as a Comprehensive Stroke Center.
The Emergency Department is a key component in these programs.
Also, Air Care has been working on expanding our services and recently
had a successful accreditation visit. If you have a chance, check
out Air Care's wonderful Facebook group and Twitter feeds.
Finally, our Behavioral Health ED and Transition units have been very
busy. It is not common knowledge that Emergency Services operates
one of UNC's largest medical and psychiatric units.
As you can see, it is an exciting time on our team as we continue to
partner with other services and other hospitals to ensure the highest
quality of emergency care to all in North Carolina. If you have
what it takes and would like to be a part of our award winning team,
then check out the opportunities on the this site's careers tab.
Thank you again for visiting our website.
