Moving Forward on Trauma Center Study

Share this post

Local officials are at the very beginning of a process that will eventually lead a feasibility study of a trauma center in the Region, a directive spelled out in the so-called “Gary bill”, Senate Bill 585 passed by the Indiana General Assembly this session. Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority President/CEO Bill Hanna says the RDA is responsible, per the legislation, to deliver that study.  "So we're at the point right now where we're trying to get a stakeholder group developed," Hanna said. " We want to be very thoughtful about that and make sure we have the right balance that represents the two-county area."  Hanna said that group's function will be as a steering committee to guide whatever team is selected  to do the actual study.  Hanna also says they want to make sure those involved understand that the Region is a unique market, that the impact of Chicago has to be considered as well as how to finance such a center.
