Unions voice opposition to Jackson ER privatization proposal
Representatives of Miami-Dade's law enforcement and firefighter unions gathered in front of the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital Wednesday announcing their opposition to a proposed plan to privatize parts of Jackson's emergency room services. Last month, Jackson Health System's chief executive, Carlos Migoya, announced that Jackson was seeking bids from outside companies for third-party medical staffs to handle emergency room operations at Jackson's three hospitals and the Roxcy Bolton Rape Treatment Center. Several union leaders, voicing support for Jackson Memorial ER staff and services, highlighted the need for a public hospital dedicated to treating low-income patients.
