Jackson Health System hires financial consultant
Despite a letter from the mayor saying the "contract should have been bid competitively," the executive committee of the Miami-Dade County Public Health Trust voted unanimously to give PricewaterhouseCoopers a $10 million no-bid consulting deal for financially troubled Jackson Health System. "We do need these services," Jackson Chief Executive Eneida Roldan told the Trust. "Time is of the essence." Trust member member Abraham Galbut said the consultant's services are necessary to to help the struggling public system. "The dynamics are if we don't change, we're doomed."
