TRIUMPH OVER TRAUMA
Carilion is proud to be able to offer trauma care to patients in western Virginia. Patients are transported here from the scene of a trauma, as well as other hospitals, in order to obtain the highest level of treatment. It's what we do every day. Hear our patients stories below.
