FWBMC needs a trauma center like I need a gastric lavage. It's a scary thought that they want a trauma center. Let's face it, they opened a neonatal or NICU. If I had a troubled child/infant I'm going to Sacred Heart and Neimors, they know what they're doing. I have a trauma, I want to be flown to Pensacola or Panama City. Again, they know what they are doing. FWBMC would have to keep an O.R. open at all times for the event of a trauma. Not to mention a surgery crew and surgeon within minutes at all times. Anyone ever have anthing done at FWBMC. How long have you had to wait for services? Now they want to be a trauma center? Lord have mercy on us all.

Agree with farenheit451's concerns. I avoid FWBMC. Love that the other hospitals post their ER waiting times - I'll head to Sacred Heart in Destin, or even to Niceville and drive right by FWBMC on the way there (and still be out and back home, more quickly).

I think we do need a trauma center, here. The argument about the golden hour is true. I just wish one of the other hospitals would step up and throw their hat in the ring as an alternative to FWBMC, for this. Meantime, I'll live with the hope that weather is good and a helicopter is available if/when a trauma event happens.

FWBMC is one of the best hospital I have been, I was admitted for my heart attack and I recieve the best medical care anyone would ask for. For a hospital in a small community as Ft.Walton Beach, it is to be commended for a job well done.
