Trauma care here in critical condition

City 'on the brink' of losing top-level care, Carmona says
By Carla McClain

Southern Arizona's lone level 1 trauma center — at University Medical Center — is in "catastrophic" shape and needs more than double the trauma surgeons it has now, says the center's new director.

Saw this article in the paper and thought it would be a good topic for discussion.

Why does Tucson have this problem? I'd love to hear some feedback. Especially from someone who has had to go to trauma care at UMC or TMC before it closed.

Sad SAD situation, odinloki,

Unfortunately, I believe all hospitals in Arizona are in "catastrophic" shape due to the abuse by the ILLEGALS.
