Miami-based Jackson South spreads word: It will not close

Miami Herald, May 10, 2010

Those who run the Women's Services department at Miami-based Jackson South Community Hospital are getting lots of calls from patients to cancel appointments. "They think we're closing the hospital," said registered nurse practitioner Dora Escobedo at a recent meeting of the Public Health Trust subcommittee formed to guide the hospital's future in the wake of Jackson Health System's financial crisis. Several of the hospital's top doctors attended the session to discuss ways Jackson South can promote itself better and let potential patients know the facility will not be closing after all, the Miami Herald reports.
