    1. I find it weird they just didnt take him to Providence….it was after all on that corner. Hope he is ok.

      • St. Joe’s is no longer a trauma hospital. They take minor injuries but they take all the heart cases.  County and Holy Cross are the two closest Trauma Centers and Burbank Paramedics transport to both facilities.

      • That was my thoght too.  He probably did not have insurance or it was his preferred hospital, or there was no open space at the time at Saint Joseph.  There could be a few reasons.  I would know because i deal with clients who are transported, so there are different possibilities why.
