In 2020, Trauma Teams boasted over a dozen Trauma Teams on call at any time in any major city. Trauma Team also has a large medical Hospital in Night City, they can also be found overseas as Trauma Team Japan located in Tokyo and Trauma Team Europe. Made up of the best paramedical techs and staff available, the teams travel within a heavily armoured AV-4 supported by mobile tanker trucks and ground refuelling stations. The AV-4 itself carries the most sophisticated reviving and life support technology available to the corporation, such as a mobile cryotank.
Summoned by dialling 911 on any phone, Trauma Teams automatically bill the caller from the moment the call is made until delivery to the hospital, tracing the origin of the call to its source. Deadman transmitters also exist, such as credit cards known as Trauma Cards able to be bent in half with a 20-mile signal, allowing Trauma Team response within the moment the victim falls into a comatose state. Trauma cards are able to be transferred so long as the owner of the card is present to sign off upon Trauma Team arrival.
After the War, Trauma Team survived as regional providers of medical assistance. Trauma Team North America originally seen as trusted medical personal, was now seen as impatient and overworked. In the event of a Trauma Team alert, the nearest team goes airborne and hones in on the last known location of the caller. The pilot drops in as close as possible, and the security officers secure the area should a firefight occur or be ongoing when they arrive, utilizing their weapons or the AV-4's twin autocannon. Once the patient is loaded onto the AV-4, they're hooked up to life support and biomonitors, as well as cryogenically stabilized. Surgery is performed on the most crucial wounds, while a specialist uses various methods to heal the patient, as the pilot takes the AV-4 to the nearest emergency room. This process takes approximately 4 minutes.
While responsible for reviving and stabilizing any critically wounded patients, Trauma Teams are under no obligation to transport casualties to a hospital. With rates of 100 Eurodollars per minute, most Trauma Team services are part of Corporate group insurance policies, or individual TT International accounts, with 500 Eb monthly premiums.Cite error: The opening

Trauma Team International was founded in Seattle, Washington some point before 2020. Due to the increased violence and crime rate in the United Sates, it quickly became one of the most powerful megacorporations in America. Trauma Team International also started operations in Canada under the same name, later moving to parts of Europe and Japan.
2022 - 2023
During the Fourth Corporate War, TTI became busier than ever before, the company's capabilities had been stretched to their limit. To keep the number of cases down, as well as to preserve their neutrality, Trauma Team declared that they wouldn't respond to any alert from a member of the Arasaka Corporation or Militech. Instead, Trauma Team would only respond to civilian requests, and they'd be charging the combat rate if anyone so much as fired a weapon within half a kilometer. Even with those extra costs, TT was swamped with calls after every clash.
Trauma Team survived the War but only as regional providers. The conflict not only drew heavily upon their limited resources, but also upon their suppliers. Repair parts for their fleet of AV-4s and jets were hard to come by, as well as medical dressings, key drugs and vaccines, as well as the trained personnel. As hospitals and clinics collapsed, more and more ill or wounded patients were dropped to Trauma Team care. Not all of these patients could afford TT's high response fees, but groups of Edgerunners had been known to chip in to buy a single card that they could break to call in the Trauma Team in the hopes that the TT paramedics would at least tend to their wounded team members.
TT's Corporate look as well after the war: in the past, their crisp blue and yellow uniforms were a comforting sign of their competence and capability. But endless street battles and the availability of surplus military hardware had forced the Trauma Team to armor up. The uniforms were still blue, but the new helmets are mil-spec, heavy duty combat rigs, coupled with heavy armor, power armor support systems (yellow), and self-contained combat medipacs. As a result this coupled with the lack of qualified Medtechs, had given Trauma Team a new face: harried, overworked, angry, and impatient. By 2045, Trauma Team International had been reduced to the Neocorp of Trauma Team North America. Trauma Teams were now independent franchise-owned groups patrolling cities and responding to insured victims.
Business Model (2020)
Full Body Life Coverage
This plan costs either $500 per month, or $5,550 with a yearly plan discount.
In the event that a Trauma Team is dispatched, the customer/patient also had to pay E$100 for every minute until arrival at the nearest corporate hospital. Finally, the customer/patient also has to pay for the cost of all ammunition that the Trauma Team fired, all of the fuel that was used, and has to pay for any equipment or personnel damage.
If the Trauma Team is not able to reach the customer within 10 minutes, the customer/patient receives 50% off the cost of spent ammunition.
Corporate Coverage / Corporate Executive Coverage
The Corporate Coverage plan costs $1,500 per month, or $16,500 with a yearly plan discount.
The Corporate Executive Coverage plan costs $12,000 per month, or $120,000 with a yearly plan discount.
These plans promise a response time of 7 minutes. The customer/patient is taken to a corporate medical center upon pickup. The customer/patient still has to pay for equipment or personnel damage.
The executive plan covers all ammo and fuel costs, but the customer/patient still has to pay for any equipment or personnel damage.
High Priority Coverage
This plan costs $34,000 per month and does not have a yearly rate.
This plan comes with a gold Trauma Team Inc. card. The response time for this plan is 3-to-5 minutes, which Trauma Team claims is the fastest in the business. Once the customer/patient is picked up, they will be taken to a corporate hospital instead of a medical center. All ammunition and fuel costs are covered, but the customer/patient still has to pay for any equipment or personnel damage.
Business Model (2045)
Operating from an AV-4 Urban Assault Vehicle of ambulance configuration and a belly-mounted minigun, Trauma Teams include a driver, one or more First Aid operatives, and two or more Solo security agents. A Dispatcher may also be part of the team, in charge of sending them on missions.
In 2045, Trauma Team demand increased, requiring the corporation to change their coverage plans to reflect the state of the world, reducing their level of coverage to two levels: Silver and Executive. Most Corporate Cops receive full medical coverage from Trauma Team. Execs can receive Corporate-paid Silver coverage at Teamwork Rank 6, being upgraded to Executive automatically at Rank 8.
Silver coverage plans cost €$500 per month, and are charged for surgery, equal to the cost of being charged at a hospital. If members do not wish to pay extra for hospital treatments, the Trauma Team will do everything in their paramedical abilities before dropping the member off at a hospital.
This plan costs €$1,000 per month, including the same benefits as Silver coverage, but surgery treatments are provided at no extra cost.
Business Model (2077)
Trauma Team services are comprised of two main components:
On-the-ground services includes 24/7 emergency AV dispatch with a reflex booster-ready pilot, armed safety experts, and military-trained paramedics. A client's health status is tracked by internal cyberware, and if a client takes a turn for the worse, an AV squad receives their GPS signal and arrives on the scene in minutes. Reaction time and additional perks are dependent on the client's insurance package.
Inpatient care guarantees that every Trauma Team branch clinic is equipped with surgical nannites, specialized antibodies, and cryogenic chambers. Trauma Team also offers their own medications and reanimators, and has a selection of surplus implants from their suppliers.
Trauma Team's premium insurance packages are divided into three grades: Silver, Gold, and Platinum. The Platinum package is the most comprehensive and expensive option. It includes 24/7 monitoring, emergency patient transport, surgery and nano surgery, post-trauma rehabilitation, plastic surgery on demand, free check ups with the client's ripperdoc, an up to 90% discount on prescriptions, a 3-minute response time. Gold and Silver packages are cheaper, but include fewer perks.
Clients can subscribe to one of Trauma Team's premium packages for as little as 24 hours if they cannot afford longer-term coverage.
Trauma Team Squads
Each Trauma Team squad consists of:
- An Aerodyne pilot
- An Aerodyne co-pilot
- 2x Security Specialists
- A lead EMT (Emergency Medical Technician)
- An assistant EMT
Each trauma team squad has their own TTI Medical AV-4A, a light-weight Aerodyne made of composite materials. The pilot mans the AV-4A, while the co-pilot mans the vehicle's front-mounted gatling gun. The pilot and co-pilot do not leave the Aerodyne during patient extraction, and their cockpit is kept separate from the rest of the vehicle.
During flight, two Security Specialists sit in the same compartment as the EMTs. The security specialists sit directly behind the pilot and co-pilot, and each of them mans a 7.62 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) machine-gun mounted to their side of the vehicle. The EMTs sit toward the back of the vehicle, with the Lead EMT sitting next to the patient stretcher and the Assistant EMT sitting next to the medical supplies.
During patient extraction, the two EMTs and two Security Specialists disembark from the AV-4A and make their way to the patient to rescue them. If necessary, the two Security Specialists will clear a path to the patient for the EMTs using their rifles and submachine guns. Each EMT is armed with a pistol for self-protection.
