The Kansas Trauma Program is a partnership between public and private organizations to address the treatment and survival of critical injuries throughout the state.

It is a network of relationships designed to direct the trauma patient to the resources most appropriate to his/her care, based on the nature of the injury.

The mission of the Kansas Trauma Program is to reduce human suffering and costs associated with preventable morbidity and mortality that result from trauma.

The goal of the Kansas trauma system is to ensure each patient is properly triaged and matched to the hospital with the most appropriate resources as quickly as possible. Because patients with severe injuries require rapid, specialized treatment to ensure the best chance for recovery, an integrated trauma system increases their chances for survival and reduces their chance of permanent disability.
