Public Safety & Healthcare Admin Cmte 5/8/2012 6A Report Received
REPORT: Mr. Carlos Migoya, CEO, Jackson Health System (JHS), noted that since October 2011 four additional primary care clinics had opened at 3801 Biscayne Boulevard, Jackson North, Jackson South, and at the Stephen P. Clark Center. He reported that plans were underway to open another four primary care clinics over the next twelve months and JHS held discussions with FIU regarding their ambulatory center. Mr. Migoya further noted JHS was researching the possibility of incorporating physicians located in close proximity to a clinic to provide preventative and primary care. In response to Commissioner Jordan’s comment regarding urgent care and primary care centers, Mr. Migoya noted different levels of service were required for each type of facility and various possibilities were being explored to expand on urgent care facilities.

Public Safety & Healthcare Admin Cmte 4/10/2012 6B Deferred to next committee meeting P
REPORT: Commissioner Heyman suggested this item be deferred and expressed concern that Jackson Health Systems had not taken any action to implement primary care clinics. Commissioner Jordan concurred and asked Mr. Carlos Migoya, President/CEO, Jackson Health System, to provide the County Commission with a strategic plan for primary care clinics throughout the County that included goals and milestones. Commissioner Souto noted funds and County land was available for placing clinics throughout the county. Chairman Diaz urged Mr. Migoya to meet with each Commissioner to address their concerns.
