FRB Update: Both Items Hastily Approved at Today’s Special Meeting

Financial Recovery Board members rushed through today’s committee meetings and held their “special meeting” one-hour early in order to approve two controversial items: renewal of Jackson CEO Carlos Migoya’s contract for another two years and the approval of a $75 million unbudgeted loan from Wells Fargo, Migoya’s previous employer. 

Management became aware that employees were planning to attend the scheduled 3 p.m. meeting to protest and FRB members suddenly began moving very quickly through the day’s committee meetings.

The Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners must approve both items and we will continue to put pressure on our elected officials to stop Migoya from balancing the budget at the expense of our patients, our mission and Jackson’s dedicated caregivers.
