TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE MAYOR OR MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO REPORT TO THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS, PUBLIC HEALTH TRUST CEO AND FINANCIAL RECOVERY BOARD ON THE AVAILABILITY, FEASIBILITY AND FISCAL IMPACT OF CONVERTING MIAMI-DADE COUNTY AND PUBLIC HEALTH TRUST OWNED, LEASED OR MANAGED REAL ESTATE TO PRIMARY CARE CLINICS

BODY
WHEREAS, the Public Health Trust (the “PHT”) is an agency and instrumentality of Miami-Dade County that is responsible for the governance, operation and maintenance of Jackson Memorial Hospital and other Designated Facilities (as such term is defined in Chapter 25A of the Code of Miami-Dade County); and
WHEREAS, the PHT’s deteriorating finances necessitate the identification of initiatives designed to increase revenue; and
WHEREAS, primary care-based delivery of healthcare is a proven cost-effective method to deliver healthcare, particularly for the prevention, detection and treatment chronic diseases; and
WHEREAS, increased provision of primary care will result in fewer emergency room visits at the Jackson main campus, and improved healthcare outcomes; and
WHEREAS, delivery of healthcare via primary care clinics is a revenue generating endeavor that may also contribute to the PHT's financial recovery; and
WHEREAS, Miami-Dade County and the PHT have a portfolio of real estate that is owned, leased or managed, including property that is unused or underutilized; and
WHEREAS, an evaluation is needed to ascertain whether Miami-Dade County and PHT owned, leased or managed real estate sites are available and suitable for conversion to primary care clinics,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board hereby directs the Mayor or Mayor’s designee to evaluate the availability, feasibility and fiscal impact of converting Miami-Dade County and PHT owned, leased or managed real estate to primary care clinics, and to submit a written report to: 1) this Board through the Public Safety and Healthcare Administration Committee within sixty (60) days of the effective date of this resolution; 2) Public Health Trust CEO; and 3) to the Financial Recovery Board of the Public Health Trust.
