Regional Advisory Committee

On Trauma Services

The Regional Advisory Committee on Trauma Services was created January 6, 2004 by the Lee County Trauma Services District Board of Directors. The Regional Advisory Committee is a key component in the process of involving the citizens served by the five-county trauma district.

This current 13-member committee is comprised of representatives from each of the five counties served in the Lee County Trauma Services District. Each representative brings a vast array of knowledge and experience from which they contribute innovative ways of thinking with respect to educating the public about the Lee Memorial Trauma Center. Another key function of the Regional Advisory Committee is to monitor the legislative and regulatory environment and the advent of possible revenue streams to fund the Lee Memorial Health System Trauma Center.

The recommendations of the advisory committee are valued by the Lee County Trauma District Board of Directors, and the members' ability to monitor the "pulse of the community" is regarded as vital to the success of the Lee Memorial Health System Trauma Center mission. The Regional Advisory Committee on Trauma Services for fiscal year 2015 is:

Trauma Facts

Since the Florida Legislature created the state's first trauma legislation in 1982, no consistent and sustained funding source for the trauma centers has been established on the state level.

In 1982, when Florida's first trauma legislation was passed, there were 50 trauma centers state-wide. Today, there are 21 state designated trauma centers operating in Florida.

The Florida trauma centers that have surrendered their trauma designation have done so due to the overwhelming financial commitments required to make a trauma center a clinically viable operation.

In 2004, more than 31,000 Florida residents and visitors were treated in a trauma center in Florida.
