DOH releases new trauma center proposed rule
The Florida Department of Health has released a new proposal aimed at resolving a fight over approving new trauma centers. The agency has scheduled a Feb. 25 hearing on the new proposal.
The plan would create a formula for the approval of centers in 19 different areas of the state, considering factors such as population, transport times to hospitals, community support, and whether there are Level 1 trauma centers, which provides the most comprehensive care, already in the area.
