Trauma Care Bills Make their Way Through Congress

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Yesterday the U.S. House of Representatives passed two bills, H.R. 647 and H.R. 648, that address critical needs for trauma system development and access to trauma care.

NTI voiced its support for the Access to Life Saving Trauma Care for All Americans Act and the Trauma Systems and Regionalization of Emergency Care Reauthorization Act, and was recognized in a press release issued by Representative Will Hurd (R-TX). The legislation will help to provide increased access to trauma care by providing authority for trauma center funding and improvements to trauma care across the country.
