Level II Trauma Center in Kissimmee, St. Cloud and Orlando

Trauma is a special type of medical emergency that requires specialized training and critical treatment.

HCA Florida Osceola Hospital is designated as a Level II Trauma Center by the Florida Department of Health. This means we’re trained and equipped to handle the most critical injuries and emergencies, from falls to car accidents, in Central Florida. We provide 24/7, in-house coverage by a trauma surgeon, anesthesia staff, surgical services teams and trauma-trained nurses.

Traumatic conditions we treat

We use specialized equipment and expertise to treat traumatic injuries, such as those that are extreme and life threatening. Some conditions we treat include:

  • Brain and head trauma
  • Car and motorcycle crash injuries
  • Chest and abdominal trauma
  • Drowning-related trauma
  • Extremity trauma (leg or arm)
  • Fall injuries
  • Facial trauma
  • Gunshot wounds and stabbings
  • Injuries caused by natural disasters
  • Neck trauma
  • Physical assault injuries
  • Spinal trauma
  • Sports/play injuries

Our trauma center services

We provide lifesaving treatment for traumatic injuries.

Emergency medical services (EMS)

Trauma care begins with EMS first responders. These teams make split-second, lifesaving decisions when transferring patients to our hospital. We work closely with EMS partners all over Central Florida to provide advanced care for critical and traumatic emergencies.

Trauma education and injury prevention

Trauma is a serious injury or shock to the body. It is caused by a physical force, such as an accident or violence. The injury may be complicated by psychiatric, behavioral and social factors.

We are dedicated to providing education on a variety of topics related to reducing your risk of injury and how to respond if one occurs. As part of that, our injury prevention coordinator is available to provide presentations. Presentation topics range from senior fall prevention to Stop the Bleed, a nationally recognized bleeding control program.
