Memorial Hermann - Red Duke Trauma Institute -Texas Medical Center
As one of the busiest trauma centers in the nation and the city’s longstanding market share leader, the Institute treats more than 14,000 adult and pediatric patients each year. With one of the busiest helipads in the world, we are also home to Memorial Hermann Life Flight®, which performs more than 3,000 missions annually.
From the awe-inspiring view of Life Flight® racing across the sky on yet another life-saving mission, to the incomparable father of trauma for our city, James “Red” Duke, Jr., we are a city of great promise and achievement. We are fortunate to have one of the finest trauma programs in the world.
However, it takes a monumental amount of resources, both private and public, to ensure our community has the level of care necessary for those who need it. In 2012—built on a foundation of long-term collaboration between the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center Campus and McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UT Health), the Memorial Hermann Red Duke Trauma Institute was established.
The Institute brings together a nationally renowned team of clinicians, researchers, and educators with the latest in research and technology to deliver its mission to provide comprehensive, life-saving services to the residents of the Gulf Coast region.
At Memorial Hermann, we are proud to honor the legacy of Dr. Duke with our state-of-the-art Red Duke Trauma Institute.
