For over 30 years, our doctors at HNSA have been part of the multidisciplinary trauma team. They take care of all patients with facial injuries seen at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, the busiest Level I Trauma Center in Oregon.
Patients from all over Oregon, Southern Washington, Northern California, and occasionally further, are transferred by air and land to have their critical injuries treated at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. The hospital is designed and fully staffed to handle any trauma situation with maximum efficiency. Our doctors are on call 24/7/365 for management of these acute facial injuries and emergencies.
In addition to providing excellent care, part of our mission is to train the next generation of surgeons.
