ASMI staff quoted in Bloomberg Business Week. Ian Weston, executive director of the American Trauma Society, managed by ASMI, was quoted in High Point Regional gives up trauma center designation, Bloomberg Business Week, Dec. 9, 2014. The article was about Highpoint (North Carolina) Regional Hospital voluntarily relinquishing its Level 3 trauma center designation. Noting that this is not an unusual event, Weston said “It is very expensive for a hospital to maintain the guidelines. It may not be economical for them to maintain a Level 3 status.” Level 3 trauma centers are usually located in rural areas that are long distances from cities with major medical centers, and this particular hospital is close to two larger hospitals with trauma center designations.
