Acute Care Excellence for Neurological Trauma

An estimated 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. For brain- or spine-related injuries, Munson Healthcare’s multidisciplinary team of trauma surgeons, neurosurgeons, and orthopedic surgeons deliver high-quality care from emergency admission through rehabilitation. 

When life is at stake from a fall, car accident, or other traumatic injury, the Munson Healthcare trauma team is ready for you. Whether it is a mild or severe injury, our goal is to stabilize every patient and determine the best course of treatment for optimal recovery. 

Northern Michigan’s Only Level II Trauma Center  

Munson Medical Center is the only accredited Level II Trauma Center in northern Michigan. That means we can deliver expert care for all injured patients, including 24-hour immediate coverage by our trauma team, general surgeons, and advanced practice professionals with specialized trauma training. 

We’re ready for you upon your arrival and remain with you throughout your hospital stay. Our trauma team works to ensure you and your family understand your plan of care — including what to expect when you leave the hospital. 

A Team Approach to Trauma Care 

To deliver the best, life-saving care, our trauma team works hand-in-hand with a team of specialists including neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, and critical care. Each provider who cares for you is aware of your current condition and treatment plan — which means you can expect comprehensive and coordinated care.

You may need continued medical care to ensure a full recovery after leaving the hospital. The Trauma Acute Care Outpatient Clinic will continue to evaluate your recovery and provide further treatment as needed. Depending on your treatment plan, follow-up appointments also may be made during neurosurgery clinic hours at our convenient Cadillac, Grayling, and Prudenville locations.
