Statement From President Martha Baker, RN, Regarding Jackson Layoffs

“We are appalled with today’s announcement of massive layoffs at Jackson.  This is what you get when you hire a billionaire banker and then cut him loose to take a chainsaw to healthcare in Miami-Dade County.  It’s unbelievable that he wouldn’t consult the nurses, doctors and healthcare professionals — who have sacrificed out of their pockets to keep Jackson afloat — about how his plan to ‘right size’ the system might harm patient care.  We have no idea how Mr. Migoya thinks patient care can be maintained with such drastic cuts to frontline caregivers.” – SEIU Local 1991 President Martha Baker, RN
