Trauma Center

The Trauma Center at Reading Hospital is the first and only trauma center in Berks County. Serving Berks and neighboring counties, we are committed to providing immediate care to those who have experienced a traumatic injury.

If someone you love is injured, it’s comforting to know the very best care is available close to home. Since 2005, the staff at the Trauma Center at Reading Hospital has been working to ensure that every patient receives the best care possible.

Level II Trauma Center

We are accredited as a Level II Trauma Center. Located in N-Building with the Emergency Department, our Trauma Center has a trauma resuscitation area with fully functional trauma bays and the capacity to handle multiple critically injured patients.

We have the resources to provide efficient surgical intervention to reduce the likelihood of death or permanent disability. As a Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation (PTSF) accredited trauma center, we are always prepared to treat the most serious life threatening and disabling injuries while meeting the Foundation’s stringent set of requirements.


As a member of the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) Trauma Network, an internationally recognized resource for excellence in trauma center design and performance, we have close affiliations with the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
