Grand jury: Jackson Health System a ’colossal mess’

Miami Herald, August 6, 2010

Jackson Health System is a "colossal mess" that must be governed in a new way, a Miami-Dade grand jury said Thursday in a much-anticipated report after six months of investigation. "Those who had the responsibility of running this institution, as well as those who had the duty of oversight, have been irresponsible, complacent and reckless, and blindly relied on financial misstatements," the report said. The report came after months of harsh criticism from community leaders and politicians about the health system's disastrous financial troubles that resulted in a loss of $244 million last year. The public hospital system is the safety net for the poor and uninsured.
