Jackson South hospital in Miami could be multimillion-dollar white elephant

Miami Herald, March 9, 2010

When the Public Health Trust meets to consider $165.4 million in budget cuts, one of the toughest debates is likely to be over the proposed closing of Jackson South in Miami, the suburban facility on which the system has pinned its hopes for the past six years. The hospital is in the midst of a taxpayer-financed $102 million, four-story expansion that is 40% complete. If the governing Trust decides to shut the facility, the board will have to make the decision to shell out $60 million to finish construction for some potential buyer, or throw $40 million away, the Miami Herald reports.
