When voters rejected the constitutional amendment on funding Georgia’s trauma care system, the issue largely went off the political radar.
Yet the weaknesses of the state’s trauma network continue to be a critical deficiency, writes Matt Caseman in a new GHN Commentary.
Caseman, executive director of the Georgia Rural Health Association, says that the state still needs a dedicated revenue stream to upgrade trauma care, especially in rural areas, where more fatal accidents occur.
“Expanding trauma care for all Georgians will save lives, and we should not wait any longer,’’ he writes.
