SLO hospitals battle over trauma center
December 14, 2009
Mike Hodgson in the Times Press Recorder has a two part series about the increasingly ugly and bitter battle between local hospitals. The issue: Whether or not SLO County should have a designated regional trauma center at one of its four hospitals.
The only facility currently eligible is Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center, so obviously they love the idea. But CHW-owned French Hospital and Arroyo Grande Hospital are doing everything they can to block the proposal. Things are bound to only get nastier in 2010.
