Florida legislators seeking to close TB hospital

South Florida Sun-Sentinel, March 28, 2008
Florida legislators are threatening to shut Lantana's A.G. Holley Hospital, the nation's last state-run, free-standing facility to treat tuberculosis patients. The closure would scuttle years of planning to turn the hospital's 145-acre campus into a $150 million research center for rare infectious diseases. The legislators estimate it would cost half of the $5.5 million they're now paying to run A.G. Holley to move the 40 tuberculosis patients there into private hospitals throughout Florida.
