$75 million in trauma care funds at risk in Georgia
Georgia's budget crisis has cast doubt on the state's ability to provide millions of dollars to expand the network of hospitals that handle trauma care. Advocates want up to $75 million annually from the state, and they are gearing up a $398,000 public awareness campaign to convince state legislators trauma care is a priority. The advocates added that the economic slowdown is hitting the state's 15 trauma hospitals, some of which are considering dropping the specialty service.
