Trauma Regions

The Kansas Trauma System is comprised of six trauma regions. Each trauma region consists of Trauma Centers, Acute Hospitals, EMS, Injury Prevention Advocates, Local Health Departments, and Rehabilitation Centers.

Six Regional Trauma Councils monitor the facilities and programs in their region assessing for areas of improvement and appropriate resource allocation.

The Regional Trauma councils advise the Advisory Committee on Trauma (ACT). The ACT advises the Secretary of KDHE in the governance of the entire state trauma system.
