Northside Hospital has filed an application to open a trauma center in South Pinellas County. Trauma programs are highly specialized services that are tremendously expensive to develop and maintain. Bayfront Health has a strong trauma center with the capacity, expertise and experience to effectively serve the community. The proposed trauma center at Northside is not needed and its opening could threaten Bayfront’s long-standing trauma program. Expansion of trauma services without thoughtful consideration is not in the best interest of the community.
