A public forum will be held March 25 at Freedom Hall in Park Forest from 2-4 to discuss establishing a Level 1 trauma center in the south suburbs. Many people are unaware that even though we have good hospitals in the area, they are not staffed for immediate treatment for serious accidents or illnesses such as stroke and heart attacks. The closest trauma centers are Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn and Silver Cross Hospital in Joliet. When paramedics have to transport a patient to a trauma center from the south suburbs, it is a race against time. This affects all of us who live, work, and travel in the south suburbs. The forum will feature Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. with other knowledgeable health professionals.Please plan to attend this important forum. Let our voices be heard.

Do you have any hospitals willing to do it? Obviously you know the biggest obstacle is the funding.
