Trauma and Acute Care Surgical Services

Our Trauma and Acute Care team of surgeons serves nearly 1,000 trauma patients annually — around a quarter of which are pediatric — with one of the most extensive coverage areas in the continental U.S. spanning from the Columbia River gorge, east to Idaho and down into parts of Northern California.

Our services include definitive trauma care for severely injured patients with 24/7 support from the AirLink Critical Care Transport helicopter and fixed-wing airplane, as well as ground ambulance service.

St. Charles trauma surgeon, Dr. Marika Gassner, shares her unique view into fatal car accidents that happen in Central Oregon.
