CFO of Miami-based Jackson Health System steps down from post

Miami Herald, February 10, 2010

A week after board members expressed outrage at Miami-based Jackson Health System's miscalculated losses, its chief financial officer has stepped down, the Miami Herald reports. Chief executive Eneida Roldan told the executive committee of the Public Health Trust that Frank Barrett had earlier announced his intention to retire in May. "He will stay on in a transitional position" until then, Roldan said. Barrett told the board recently that the loss in fiscal 2009, originally thought to be $46.8 million, was really $203.8 million. The projected loss for fiscal 2010 jumped from $87 million to $229 million, the Herald reports.
