Can Talks Solve Trauma Fight?

Officials from the Florida Department of Health will look to negotiations among surgeons, hospital lawyers and the Florida Department of Health's top attorney as they revise the rule on new trauma centers, the News Service of Florida reports.

The talks, led by former Supreme Court justice Kenneth Bell, are intended to resolve the disagreement over which applications for new centers are approved.

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.
