The medical staff at Orlando Regional Medical Center has been on the front lines of trauma for nearly a century. They manage the health and survival of people all over Central Florida, including those suffering from catastrophic injuries after a car accident and those suffering from single and multiple gun shot wounds. They play such a crucial role in Orlando specifically that politicians in Tallahassee are trying to expand the number of trauma centers throughout the state.
But Florida doctors disagree. They argue that creating more trauma centers may seem positive on the surface, but at a more practical level, additional properties would mean spreading out the labor of the most highly trained specialists. Currently, the law permits 44 trauma centers in the state and the best medical professionals are concentrated in those hospitals. The proposed legislation from Representative Jay Trumbull is gaining attention, largely because it sounds good on paper and could be beneficial in theory. Watching to see whether it moves through both houses of the state legislature is the next stage for voters curious about the decisions of their lawmakers.
