Pella Regional Health Center has been re-certified as a level three trauma care unit.

A trauma care facility may be located in rural or urban areas and have the resources to provide initial stabilization for all trauma patients and may provide surgical and/or critical care for trauma patients when appropriate.

If specialty surgical intervention is necessary or if specialized care is needed, patients may be transferred to a resource or regional trauma care facility.

The certification is recognized for a period of three years.
