WAUKEGAN – State Senator Adriane Johnson is hosting a meeting with State Representative Rita Mayfield regarding Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan losing its trauma center designation, causing people with serious injuries to have to be transported to hospitals more than 20 minutes away.

“I have been working to ensure that we create substantial solutions to the issue regarding Vista Medical Center East’s trauma center designation,” said Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove). “This revocation will greatly impact residents – both patients and employees alike – and it is imperative that we intervene.”

The meeting will take place on Saturday, March 9 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Patricia A. Jones Center located at Park Place, 414 S. Lewis Ave. in Waukegan. This meeting is open to the public and also available virtually via Zoom, linked here.
