Miami-Dade institutions report on Haitian healthcare efforts

Miami Herald, January 27, 2010

South Florida's healthcare institutions announced their Haitian relief efforts during the monthly meeting of the Public Health Trust. The University of Miami medical school, which has established a 300-bed hospital in Port-au-Prince, is spending "at least a couple of million in the first month," said Dean Pascal Goldschmidt. Meanwhile, the financially strapped Jackson Health System has treated 97 earthquake victims as of Jan. 25. Jackson reports that many of the first patients did have some kind of insurance, but the system doesn't yet know exactly how much the Haitian effort is costing, and how much is yet to come, the Miami Herald reports.
