Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Cudahy, WI - Aurora St. Luke’s South Shore has been classified by the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services as a Level IV Trauma Care Facility.

Aurora St. Luke’s South Shore is one of 124 hospitals statewide that voluntarily participates in Wisconsin’s trauma system. The system identifies hospital trauma care facilities by classifying each as a Level I, II, III, IV or an “unclassified” facility.
