UF Health TraumaOne is the region’s only Level I adult and pediatric trauma center serving 30 counties in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. The unit provides life-saving care to thousands of trauma victims each year, as well as, comfort and support for their families.   Unlike other hospitals in the area, trauma surgeons, nurses and other healthcare professionals in specialties including neurosurgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, emergency medicine, orthopaedic trauma surgery and cardiothoracic surgery, are available on campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  This allows UF Health to provide immediate critical care to those in our community with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Our UF Health heroes save lives, allowing those who have suffered from traumatic injury or illness and their families to return home, building healthy and strong communities.

UF Health TraumaOne’s mission is not only to provide life-saving care to trauma patients; but to prevent injuries. Each year TraumaOne helps educate over 15,000 people in our community through its injury prevention programs.

Consider running today in honor of one of our Superheroes: An individual who has overcome a life-threatening injury and the many Heroes who stand ready each and every day protecting our community through expert trauma care.
