UF Health Jacksonville is proud to be home to Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia’s only Level I adult and pediatric trauma center. It’s a big part of what positions our organization to become the region’s most valued health care asset.
Providers at UF Health TraumaOne serve more than 4,000 patients from 30 counties each year. These heroes save lives every day.
But what is a hero?
Trauma surgeons, neurosurgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, anesthesia and emergency medicine personnel, nurses, therapists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and our resident trainees are all here to do a job for which they are compensated. But their dedication to trauma care — to not just healing but comforting — is what makes them heroes.
