Injury Prevention

Injury Prevention: Safety First

As the preeminent Level I Trauma Center in Minnesota, we understand how clearly and quickly injuries change a life: In fact, 1 in 10 people sustain an injury that requires ER treatment, and accidents are one of the leading causes of death and disability. Because of these statistics, we’re more committed than ever to preventing injury in our community with outreach, education, and hands-on experiences to make all lives safer.
