Debate renewed on Jackson Health System oversight

Miami Herald, May 6, 2010

But as the hospital system confronts a $230 million deficit and grapples with the gulf between its mission to serve all and its limited financial resources, some think that the current hybrid system be junked in favor of making Jackson a Miami-Dade county department or setting it free as an autonomous hospital district with its own taxing authority, the Miami Herald reports.
