SVMH pushes for trauma designation
The Californian - Salinas

With less than 48 hours remaining on the deadline to submit applications to become Monterey County’s first Level II trauma center, Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System is pushing a campaign to highlight why it is the best choice to be awarded the designation.

Both SVMHS and Natividad Medical Center have submitted letters of intent to become Level II centers — facilities that can treat the most critically injured patients — and must submit plans by Friday that will outline the specific actions the two hospitals plan to take in order to accomplish that goal.
