New York State Trauma Program
The NYS Trauma Program is housed within the NYS Department of Health - Bureau of Emergency Medical Services. The Program oversees the statewide trauma system consisting of one State Trauma Advisory Committee (STAC), eight Regional Trauma Advisory Committees (RTACs), 40 Regional and Area ("Level 1" and "Level 2", respectively) Trauma Centers, and a New York State Trauma Registry (NYSTR). The Program integrates these pieces, along with the statewide EMS system, to regulate and assure high quality trauma care to seriously injured patients.
