Eneida Roldan chosen to head Miami's Jackson Health System

Miami Herald, April 20, 2009

After a nationwide search, the Miami Public Health Trust voted unanimously Friday to pick a veteran hospital administrator, Eneida Roldan, as the new chief executive of the Jackson Health System. She will become the first woman and first Hispanic to lead the tax-supported system, which generates more than $1 billion in revenue from four hospitals, 10 primary care centers, and other facilities, as well as a half-penny sales tax. With growing numbers of uninsured and pressures to reduce reimbursement rates for the Medicaid program that serves the poor, Roldan acknowledges she will face severe challenges of running a public hospital during a recession.
