South L.A. may get a trauma center again

The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to look at ways to bring a Level I trauma center back to South Los Angeles.

At the recommendation of Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, the board directed staffers to come up with options, including a timeline, within 90 days.

“Ensuring quality trauma care is a priority for me,” Ridley-Thomas said. “We need more information and analysis to get a complete picture of the county’s trauma care needs.”
