Judge: Ruling on new trauma centers based on 'facts, logic and reason'
from Jacksonville Business Journal
An order by Judge R. Bruce McKibben affirms a rule that would allow new trauma centers to open in Florida. The rule says new centers can open in places that see a high volume of severely injured patients and meet specific criteria for transport times and population, a Tampa Bay Times report said. Trauma centers provide specialized services and physicians for severely injured patients. They are expensive to operate but raise a hospital’s profile and quality of care.
