    Document Title
    Virginia Department of Health Office of Emergency Medical Services Trauma Fund Report on Use of Funds in Improving Virginia’s Trauma System, and Review of Feasible Long Term Financing Mechanisms and Potential Funding Sources for Virginia’s Trauma Centers - November 19, 2008

    Department of Health

    Enabling Authority
    Appropriation Act - Item 290 D. (Regular Session, 2008)

    Executive Summary
    In Virginia, 13 hospitals voluntarily undergo trauma center designation and commit to provide a higher level of care necessary to the seriously injured. Despite the value trauma centers provide to the community, trauma centers face a variety of challenges that have led to a loss of trauma center designation or downgrades in coverage across the nation as well as in Virginia. These challenges are deterring additional hospitals from seeking trauma center designation.
