No easy fix for troubled Jackson Health System

Miami Herald, February 4, 2010

Healthcare leaders in Miami-Dade County, FL, agreed that the county dare not let the financially troubled Jackson Health System fail, but no one yet has a clear idea of how to keep it going, the Miami Herald reports. The comments came a day after Jackson executives released revised figures, forecasting that the public system will lose $229 million this fiscal year. It is losing $14 million a month. The system needs about 16 days of cash, or about $70 million, just to meet biweekly payroll for its 12,000 employees, the Herald reports.
