The Philadelphia area has five accredited Level I adult trauma centers. To receive the designation of a Level I trauma center, the hospital must be able to provide the highest level of definitive, comprehensive care for the severely injured adult patient. Under the 2011 standards for trauma center accreditation, a Level I facility must have an attending radiologist capable of diagnostic, invasive and therapeutic procedures promptly "available" 24 hours a day. The accreditation requirement does not require an attending radiologist be present in-house and leaves it to the discretion of the hospital if the attending radiologist must respond in-house.
