The only major issue on the Nov. 5 ballot is the bond for Jackson Health System. I’d like to share my perspective as a nurse at Jackson. No matter your economic or social background, everyone in Miami will need Jackson at some point in their lives. Regardless of their ability to pay, no matter how severe the case, we will take you in and provide some of the best healthcare available anywhere.
But Jackson’s facilities are old and worn out. Upgrades are needed. The bond will be used to bring our community hospital up to the level where it can compete in the healthcare market and offer patients the experiences that will keep them coming back. Please take time to cast your vote.
