Trauma Center Data in findERnow

On an annual basis, EMNet compiles publicly available trauma center data about all US EDs, and presents this information in findERnow. Specifically, EMNet compiles lists of trauma centers verified by the American College of Surgeons or local government (state or Washington, D.C.).

EMNet also can provide researchers with the complete list of trauma centers, linked with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Provider ID numbers. To request this list, please contact us at with a project proposal, including:
