Jackson Health head Carlos Migoya reflects on first 5 years as CEO, talks the system's future

Miami-based Jackson Health System hired Carlos Migoya five years ago as its CEO, and in that time he brought the struggling system into the black. In an interview with Becker's Hospital Review looking back on his tenure thus far, Migoya said that Jackson is now "in the stage of working on the next five years" and maintaining its financial surplus. Migoya said the system has seen improvements on quality and safety surveys and better Hospital Consumer Assessment of Health Providers and Systems scores. Jackson is also rebuilding and renovating its buildings and facilities to improve care, Migoya told Becker's. "We want to make sure Jackson has the top facilities and patient care," he said. "Ultimately, we want to be regarded as one of the top public and teaching hospitals--and the hospital of choice--for many south Florida residents and people around the country." Article
