Can Jackson's new CEO avoid the mistakes of the outgoing chief?

The Miami Herald, May 2, 2011

As Miami-Dade's financially desperate public hospitals brought in a new CEO on Sunday, some healthcare experts wonder whether the incoming CEO, Carlos Migoya, is heading down the same political path that led to the exit of Eneida Roldan. Roldan, a Miami physician with limited time in hospital administration, was chosen two years ago by Jackson Health System's governing board over two national candidates with far more experience. Migoya, a 35-plus year Miami banker with no healthcare background, was picked last month over two national candidates with decades of hospital experience. In both cases, board members felt their local connections could help Jackson.
