State commission recommends major changes in FL public hospitals

Miami Herald, January 5, 2012
A state commission has released a report that could mean huge changes in the government-owned hospitals in Broward and Miami-Dade counties, but it's unclear how quickly the Legislature will act on the group's recommendations. On Wednesday, healthcare experts were still digesting the 42-page report released Tuesday by the Commission on Review of Taxpayer Funded Hospital Districts, which recommended fundamental changes in the North and South Broward Hospital Districts and took a swipe at the high costs of Jackson Health System. The commission also recommended major Medicaid alterations that could be felt by all hospitals in the state.
