$23 million won't keep Georgia trauma system healthy, advocates say

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, April 8, 2009

The state Legislature provided $23 million for Georgia's trauma care hospitals, less than half the money they received last year. The budgeting worries advocates who fear the cut will endanger service at the 15 trauma hospitals. The state's struggling trauma care network needs $80 million a year to shore up these hospitals and to expand services to underserved areas, advocates say.
