Miami Herald, March 8, 2010

With cash set to run out in May, Miami-based Jackson Health System announced plans to lay off 4,487 employees—more than a third of the work force—and close the system's two satellite hospitals. The cuts will save the public health system $165.4 million by eliminating a broad range of services, including the closing of Jackson North and Jackson South hospitals. Even with the cuts, officials said there will remain a deficit of $64 million for fiscal 2009.
