Trauma Center

Trauma Center

Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) is Los Angeles County’s newest trauma center bringing a higher level of care to the entire Eastern L.A. County region.
The L.A. County Board of Supervisors voted July 7, 2015, to begin the process of adding PVHMC to the county’s trauma network. This will allow the Hospital to provide desperately needed, life-saving treatment to victims of major accidents and trauma incidents.
Currently, more than 1,200 trauma patients in Eastern L.A. County each year are rushed by helicopter or ambulance more than 25 miles away to L.A. County –USC Medical Center, Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, or the University of California, Irvine Medical Center.
The PVHMC is preparing itself for a Level II Trauma Center designation by expanding the Emergency Department by adding 22 beds, building a parking structure with a helipad, upgrading equipment with state-of-the-art technologies and adding a 12-bed Intensive Care Unit. It is also training nurses and ancillary staff, recruiting for specialized positions, and partnering with a local surgical group that will provide round-the-clock surgical staffing for the trauma center.
