My loved fell down, hitting his head on the sidewalk, busting it open and fell into a coma. He has private medical insurance, but because Valley medical center is the ONLY nearby trauma center he was rushed to this hospital. He was well taken care of on a ventilator for several days, his life was saved and he is okay today. An accident could happen to any one at any time, if you have insurance or not, rich or poor, etc, etc. Believe me, you do not want the only trauma center to not be there for your loved one, or yourself. PLEASE VOTE YES ON MEASURE A!!
