Florida Legislature expected to slash hospital budgets

Miami Herald, January 8, 2009

After weathering back-to-back budget cuts, Florida hospitals now face a $137 million reduction that could soon put the state's healthcare system into crisis and lead to the closure of some facilities, according to hospital officials. The hospital cuts won't go into effect until spring, when legislators return for the regular lawmaking session to hash out next year's budget. That budget already has a projected deficit of about $4 billion.
