Trauma / Surgical Critical Care
Trauma Surgeons in Rhode Island
Brown Surgical Associates’ Division of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care provides comprehensive emergency medical care to adults and pediatric patients who suffer traumatic injuries.
Our goal is not only to provide the best surgical care possible in emergency situations but also to offer injury prevention programs in the communities we serve and to participate in clinical research that seeks to improve patient outcomes through innovative surgical techniques and trauma care management.
The highly trained critical care providers at Brown Surgical Associates include board-certified trauma surgeons and nurses trained in acute care. We work out of operating rooms that are staffed 24 hours a day. Our dedicated team of surgeons is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They can oversee and coordinate all aspects of patient care.
Health Care Providers: If you need to transfer a traumatically injured patient from your institution to Rhode Island Hospital, please contact Rhode Island Express Care at (401) 444-3000, which is available 24/7 to assist you in coordinating a timely transfer. If this is a nonurgent situation, please call the BSA trauma clinic at (401) 228-0599 for more information.

If you are in need of a speaker for your conference or other event, or you simply want additional information, please contact educational program manager, Nie Bohlen, MSN, RN, by calling (401) 444-2282 or by email to email@example.com.
