Jackson Health System's Board to Shrink from 17 to 7 Members

The Miami-Dade County Commission made a decision this week to reduce the governing body at Miami-based Jackson Health System, shrinking the board from 17 to seven members, according to a Miami Herald report.  

The board will now be the same size as the financial recover board, which was temporarily put in place to oversee Jackson in spring 2011. Marcos Lapciuc, the financial board's chairman, said a permanent, smaller governing body would make Jackson more nimble.

The financial board will end its term in May 2013, when the restructured Public Health Trust will resume control. The board will be selected by a nominating committee of nine people. Five of those nine individuals will be board members. The commission will then approve the nominees.
