HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Edward G. Rendell today signed into law Senate Bill 922, which makes a number of technical changes in the Public Welfare Code and codifies the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Stabilization Act.
The bill also makes changes to the accreditation standards for level III trauma centers to allow additional centers to be accredited. It makes necessary changes to comply with a recent federal court ruling that found the act unconstitutional, as it only allowed for payment to Pennsylvania hospitals.
