Jackson Health System dismisses trauma petition

The Miami Herald, February 15, 2013
Jackson Health System announced Thursday it has filed a notice to voluntarily dismiss its petition for a state hearing that included a suggestion that the state revoke the provisional license for the trauma center at the Kendall Regional Medical Center. The Florida Health Department is trying to craft a new statewide standard for determining how many trauma centers an area needs. In a memo to county political leaders, Jackson Chief Executive Carlos Migoya called it "a strategic decision on the future," meaning it will focus instead on the Florida Health Department's plan to craft a new statewide standard for determining how many trauma centers an area needs.
