PA-based Paoli Hospital seeks to open trauma center
Paoli (PA) Hospital announced that it hopes to open a trauma center. Pennsylvania's Chester County has been without such a facility since 2002, when Brandywine Hospital closed its trauma center. The hospital, part of Main Line Health, said it would submit a letter of intent to open a Level II trauma center to the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation, which oversees trauma care in the state. The Main Line Health board of governors already approved the plan.
