The RDA is issuing a request for proposals (RFP) for a feasibility study regarding the need for a trauma center in Northwest Indiana and a feasibility study on an academic medical center in Northwest Indiana. In accordance with Indiana statute IC 36-7.5-5, the RDA must investigate whether the statistical profile of injuries annually sustained by the population of Northwest Indiana justifies the placement of one or more trauma centers in the region and, if so, what the appropriate levels of the trauma center(s) should be to care for those injuries, in terms of the trauma center rating system of the American College of Surgeons.
The Indiana General Assemble also directed the RDA to examine the feasibility of developing an academic medical center in Northwest Indiana.
