“As an adult trauma center, Suburban Hospital also has the expertise needed to stabilize critically injured children prior to their transfer to a pediatric trauma center,” said Trauma Program Director Melissa Meyers. “Although we are not a Burn Center, we are also capable of providing emergency care to burn victims prior to their transport to a specialty burn unit.”
Serving Montgomery County and surrounding Frederick and Prince George’s counties, Suburban Hospital’s trauma center averages approximately 1,500 major trauma cases a year, including victims of motor vehicle crashes, falls, industrial accidents, or acts of violence.
