Trauma center to open on Chicago's South Side

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The University of Chicago has announced a plan to open an adult trauma center on the city's South Side.

The $40 million project with Sinai Health System would transform Holy Cross Hospital's emergency room into a Level 1 trauma center.

Activists have been lobbying for years for high quality care in one of the city's most violent areas.

This will be the fourth adult trauma center in the city of Chicago.
