Our American College of Surgeons (ACS) Level I Pediatric Trauma Center designation means that children in the region have access to exceptional care at the most critical time. This accreditation is a national designation that requires both high quality clinical care and research in the field of trauma with continued innovation. Le Bonheur is also designated as a children’s trauma center on the state level in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi.

Why Le Bonheur Children’s?

Our Trauma Team

The Trauma Center at Le Bonheur is led by Medical Director Trey Eubanks, MD. Our dedicated trauma team also includes a program manager, coordinator, registrar, nurse practitioner and data analyst.

The Trauma team also works collaboratively with orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, critical care intensivists, emergency physicians, plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists. This coordinated care ensures that a high level of expertise is available for each child.

Outreach Education

Caring for trauma patients takes a whole community. The Trauma team teaches courses for regional EMS providers, Emergency Department and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit nurses, school nurses and pediatricians. Injury prevention efforts are led by Safe Kids Mid-South and utilize trauma data to target programs for the most common injuries.
