Jackson Health System's consulting tab could skyrocket
Miami Herald, April 2, 2010
After paying Deloitte consultants $97 million over six years to reduce losses and improve revenue, the financially desperate Jackson Health System in Miami has now hired consultants to reduce losses and improve revenue. PricewaterhouseCoopers has 20 staffers in Miami on a one-month, $50,000 contract, but Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez expects PwC to propose a lengthy extension that could cost many millions more to help turn around the public health system. It's projected to lose $229.4 million this fiscal year unless drastic measures are taken, the Miami Herald reports.
