Many car and truck accidents occur on heavily-traveled Interstate 70, which runs east and west on its way from Indianapolis to St. Louis. US Highway 41 is also heavily traveled and sees its share of car and truck crashes as it funnels traffic north to Chicago or south to Vincennes and Evansville.

Terre Haute is also home to several CSX Transportation railroad lines.

Terre Haute is home to two major hospitals, Terre Haute Regional Hospital and Union Hospital. According to Indiana's Medical Error Report, in 2018, Terre Haute Regional Hospital had one reportable event, which was Stage 3 or 4 pressure ulcers acquired after admission. In that same Report, Union Hospital reported one incident involving the retention of a foreign object in a patient after surgery. Neither hospital reported any errors involving surgery on the wrong body part or wrong patient or the wrong surgical procedure performed on a patient.
