Supervisors pick Kaiser for trauma center

Sacramento Bee, December 12, 2007

After years of planning and months of public debate, Sacramento County has tapped Kaiser Permanente to open the region's next trauma center. Kaiser beat out Methodist Hospital of Sacramento, which had fought vigorously to win the trauma center nod. County officials have said that population growth requires the new trauma center by 2010, but Kaiser has announced it will open its center in 2008.
