New dialysis plan at Miami-based Jackson Health will prevent ER overcrowding

Miami Herald, January 11, 2010
Three healthcare institutions agreed to help Miami-based Jackson Health's dialysis patients because the $100,000 move could save lives while saving costs in their own emergency rooms. The UM Hospital, Baptist Health South Florida, and Mercy Hospital said they would fund for one month 40-some dialysis patients who have lost their support from Jackson Health System. On Dec. 31, the financially struggling Jackson decided to drop contracts with out-patient dialysis centers to treat persons who are not covered by insurance. The move saves Jackson $4.2 million a year.
