Look for trauma centers that are verified by the American College of Surgeons. A list can be found at http://www.facs.org/trauma/verified.html/ Level I and II centers must meet very high standards and provide excellent care. If your state does not use the American College of Surgeons, standards are a bit more variable. However, Level I and II standards in those states are very high and the quality should be excellent.

In brief: Ask around

Best trauma centers are usually the 'bigger' hospitals, like university medical centers, and hospitals in bigger cities.
