Jackson Misled Investors, SEC says

Jackson Health System, which has asked voters to approve $830 million in bonds on Nov. 5, misled investors in a smaller bond offering four years ago, according to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Those who led the system at the time are no longer in power and the SEC said it would not seek financial penalties. The health system, which runs Jackson Memorial Hospital, is cooperating with the investigation, according to the South Florida Business Journal.  

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
