Pomona Valley Hospital preparing for trauma designation
Daily Bulletin

Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center is about halfway through the process of becoming a full-fledged trauma center for eastern Los Angeles County.

The effort began last year, and hospital leaders are in the middle of hiring personal, expanding the facilities and applying for permits. Representatives are eyeing a late-October finish line.

The move means eastern Los Angeles County residents in critical need won’t have to fly by helicopter or take an ambulance to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center in Los Angeles.
