The Ouellette campus of WRH is designated as a Lead Trauma Hospital. We provide service to any injured child or adult that arrives at our hospital and accept transfers from other facilities.
Over 80% of our major trauma patients arrive directly from the scene. Our vision is to reduce injury-related morbidity and mortality in Ontario.
The purpose of a Lead Trauma Hospital is to ensure a high level of care for patients with serious traumatic injuries and to provide leadership in the areas of injury prevention, trauma research, and trauma education.
The Lead Trauma Hospitals in Ontario are funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to ensure 24-hour trauma team leader availability, program management and data collection.
Through the P.A.R.T.Y Program, the trauma team works with different community agencies and groups to promote injury prevention through reality education, enabling youth to recognize risk and make informed choices about activities and behaviours. Learn more at the WRH P.A.R.T.Y. Program website.
