Local unions protested a plan to privatize part of Jackson Memorial Hospital Wednesday. The unions claiming the move would put profits before patients.
Miami-Dade Commissioner Barbara Jordan and Martha Baker, President of SEIU Healthcare Florida Local 1991 join Jim DeFede to share their thoughts on the possibility of JMH’s ER going private.
More than 920 Jackson Memorial Hospital employees could be out of a job by the end of the month. The hospital gave out pink slips last week and some employees argue the affects are already apparent. The hospital now faces a fight from unions and questions over patient care.
Twenty-four hours after news first broke that Jackson Health System was laying off 920 people, many of those impacted by the firings are not going to go quietly.
In the first month of their new fiscal year, Jackson Health System came in nearly $10 million in the red. In order to stem the out flow of cash, Jackson has announced the elimination of 240 positions.
