Public hospitals in Miami tackle deficit with pain

New York Times, March 19, 2010

After warning two weeks ago that it would run out of money within weeks, Miami's public hospital group has put together a stabilization plan that will keep most services intact through the end of September. The plan, approved by county officials, would lead Jackson Health System to cut 655 positions, delay debt payments and, if possible, exact $30 million in concessions from unions. Health officials said it was just a "first step" in a restructuring that could reshape how South Florida's poor and sick receive care, the New York Times reports.
