CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma has verified Cheyenne Regional Medical Center as a Level III Trauma Center. 

This makes CRMC the only ACS-verified trauma center in the state of Wyoming, a news release states.

For a center to be a Level III Trauma Center, a team of trauma experts will need to complete a site review of the hospital and review over 300 measures that focus on trauma resources, patient care, commitment and team readiness. 


CRMC’s trauma program was found to have no deficiencies by the surveyors, according to the release.

CRMC’s trauma medical director, Lisa Burton, MD, said, “Being verified as an ACS trauma center is an extremely thorough and rigorous process. … The reviewers evaluate medical records to determine the treatment provided to trauma patients and the patients’ overall outcomes.”

The surveyors also assess the hospital’s injury prevention programs.


CRMC has an injury prevention program that includes community education about keeping children safe and elderly fall prevention as well as a Stop the Bleed program.

CRMC is verified as a Level III Trauma Center through May 4, 2025, and is also designated by the State of Wyoming as a Regional Trauma Center.
