Profits Rise at Orlando Health, Jackson

It’s third quarter earnings season, and among the health systems reporting profits are Orlando Health Inc. and Jackson Health System. Orlando Health, which owns and operates eight Central Florida hospitals, made $44.4 million in its third quarter profits, according to the Orlando Business Journal. Jackson Health System, the public health provider for Miami-Dade County, is expected to greatly exceed its goal of $11 million in gains this year, 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.
