Changes stepping up as Tarrant County, TX, hospital administrator leaves

Fort Worth Star-Telegram, May 27, 2008
A day after the administrator of Tarrant County, TX's public hospital was shown the door, experts say sweeping changes at JPS Health Network could continue. The appointment of an interim chief executive is a step in the right direction to improve access of the poor to JPS services and the quality of healthcare for its patients, said Tarrant County commissioners. Under outgoing CEO David Cecero, JPS lost sight of its mission to treat the uninsured and underinsured, some commissioners said. More changes will be also be made as two new hospital board members and a chief executive are chosen, they added.
