Trauma Centers Lawsuit Inches On

A two-year legal battle over trauma centers made its way to a state appeals court Tuesday.  Four hospitals in Florida -- three in Tampa Bay and one in Jacksonville -- are trying to block the HCA hospital chain from opening more trauma centers in their regions, according to the Miami Herald.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
