The State

June 23, 1989

The Alameda County Board of Supervisors has proposed to increase a countywide tax by up to $8 to help bail out the county's trauma care system. The system is "financially punishing the three participating hospitals," said Don Perata, chairman of the Board of Supervisors. "With this kind of support, no hospital gets rich providing trauma care, but we will finally have a solid program." The tax plan would provide $4 million a year for the trauma centers, set up to treat victims within the first critical hour of injury.
