Jackson Health System chief heads West

Miami Herald, October 13, 2008

Marvin O'Quinn, chief executive of Florida-based Jackson Health System, has resigned to accept a top job with Catholic Healthcare West, a system of more than 40 hospitals. O'Quinn, 56, was praised by leaders of the Public Health Trust, which supervises Jackson. They said O'Quinn took over a money-losing system and made it financially steady at a time when other public hospitals have been struggling to survive. O'Quinn was head of Jackson for five years, taking over when it had an $85 million annual loss and finishing with a surplus the following year.
