Jackson Health System to cut 1,115 jobs

Miami Herald, February 29, 2012

Jackson Health System announced Tuesday it is cutting 1,115 jobs, for a net savings of $69 million annually in an attempt to stave off the possibility that the struggling public hospitals would run out of money by August. Chief Executive Carlos Migoya said the moves were necessary to "right-size" the staff because of reduced numbers of patients. But at the same time, he announced that Jackson would add up to 350 part-time employees to provide flexible staffing to meet changing patient volumes. Factoring in both the reductions and additions, "Jackson will have approximately 10 percent fewer employees than it did last summer," Migoya said in a memo to the Jackson board and South Florida political leaders. Those who lose their jobs could be first in line for part-time positions.
