Miami-based Jackson Health System may cut overtime
Pressured by the prospects of mounting losses, leaders of the Miami-based Jackson Health System expressed concern that the public hospital employees had racked up almost 1.2 million hours of overtime over a 12-month period. Jackson leaders expect the system to lose $56 million this year and $168 million next year, and they're looking to shave costs wherever possible. Trummell Valdera, Jackson's chief human resources officer, focused on the 359,193 hours of "contractual overtime" during a one-year period: 40% of the total overtime the system paid between May 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009.
