Grand jury is probing Jackson Health System

Miami Herald, March 11, 2010

Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle has presented to a grand jury complaints about "gross mismanagement" at Jackson Health System. Meanwhile, with Jackson executives using end-of-life terms like "death spiral" and "insolvency," Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez said he would help get Jackson get a short-term loan but demanded its governing body speed up a decision on a recovery plan. Last week, Jackson CEO Eneida Roldan called for the Public Health Trust to approve a plan to cut $160 million by March 22. She proposed cutting 4,500 jobs and closing two suburban hospitals if additional funding is not found.
