Injuries hospitalize thousands of people in Arizona every year. And, injuries are the leading cause of death in our State for individuals 44 years of age and younger. In many emergency medicine and trauma cases, the difference between life and death is a matter of time and every second counts. 

The name MIHS is known throughout the Valley’s first responder community for its top ranked Level I Adult Trauma Center. “In the police department, we would talk about writing on our bulletproof vests, ‘If found, take me to Maricopa Medical Center’ because everybody knew, no matter what your injury was, that was the best care you could receive,” said Jason Schechterle, a former Phoenix police officer and burn survivor.

MIHS’ Trauma Centers, adult and pediatric emergency departments care for a wide variety of emergencies, from the most minor injuries to life-threatening conditions.  MIHS provides both adult and pediatric care, meaning we keep families together in their hour of need.

And of course, they operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. MIHS is known for emergencies for a good reason – just ask any first responder.

“We were in a car accident in April, and when I say, we, I mean myself and all three of my kids; scariest day of my life!! The staff and doctors at your facility were BEYOND phenomenal! I have never experienced such amazing patient care in my life, and as difficult as that time was for us, the staff there made us more comfortable and less freaked out." – Kimberly H.
