Governor Scott’s plan for public hospitals

By on March 25th, 2011

Governor Rick Scott has created a seven-member commission to review taxpayer funded hospitals. The review will affect 30 active public hospital districts. University of Florida Chairman of Health Service Research, Paul Duncan, says the biggest issue facing hospitals in Florida is how to provide care for those unable to pay.

“Tax district hospitals are one way that historically our nation has tried to deal with that problem and whether or not that’s the best way to deal with the problem in the current context of Florida, I assume is the subject of this commission’s work.”

Governor Scott and Legislative leaders expect to receive the review and recommendations on January 1st.
