Monterey Herald

Both Salinas area hospitals will compete for permission to set up a trauma center capable of treating the most seriously injured patients at any hour of the day or night.

Officials from Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital and Natividad Medical Center submitted a letter of intent and a $15,000 proposal fee by Feb. 8, the deadline set by the county Emergency Medical Services department for responding to a request for qualifications as part of the Level II trauma center designation process.
