Scenic Mountain Hospital Not Equipped To Handle High-Level Trauma 8/15/13
August 15th, 2013
All three victims were transferred to other hospitals and now CBS 7 is asking why Scenic Mountain Hospital isnít equipped to handle high-level traumas.
Scenic Mountain Hospital is designated as a level four trauma center. Meaning it is equipped to provide resuscitations, stabilizations and provide transfer to hospitals. Councilman Glenn Carigan says itís time for Big Spring to have a hospital equipped to handle high-level trauma.
"The more people you have, the more problems you're going to have...the more problems you're going to have. Big Spring is set to grow quite a bit in the next couple of years"
Councilman Glenn Carigan also says that Scenic Mountain is having trouble finding physicians to come to Big Spring.
