Antelope Valley Hospital wants more trauma center funds from L.A. County
Los Angeles Times

Antelope Valley Hospital has filed a legal claim accusing Los Angeles County officials of shortchanging the medical facility on special tax revenue intended to support costly trauma centers.

Measure B — a parcel tax passed by voters in 2002 — raises roughly $250 million a year to help fund the county’s 14 trauma centers, which are special emergency room units staffed and equipped to treat patients who are critically injured in shootings, car crashes and other incidents.
