The University of Washington established the Center for Prehospital Emergency Care at Harborview Medical Center in 2004 to bring together its longstanding activities that provide excellent prehospital emergency care, train others to do the same, and discover future methods of further improving care for patients with acute life-threatening illness in the out-of-hospital setting.

Current activities include single center and multi center observational and randomized studies of tests and treatments intended to improve care for patients with acute life threatening illness in the out of hospital and early hospital setting. Dr. Graham Nichol serves as director of the Center and holds the Leonard A Cobb Medic One Endowed Chair in Prehospital Emergency Care.

Center faculty have ongoing collaborations with clinicians and researchers at more than 20 other hospitals or universities in 12 different countries.
