Jackson Health System chief: I've had enough

The Miami Herald, November 24, 2010

Angered that a county commissioner questioned her "integrity and moral fiber," Eneida Roldan announced Monday she will step down as chief executive of Jackson Health System when her contract runs out next June.

After 18 months in the top job, facing persistent pressure from Miami-Dade leaders to stop massive losses, Roldan wrote Jackson's chairman on Monday that she decided she had had enough.

She made her decision after Commissioner Carlos Gimenez called her Friday afternoon, questioning her integrity and threatening "my continued employment with the Public Health Trust," she said. "He accused me of being deceitful."
