In addition to their call to terminate Broward health Corporate Counsel Lynn Barrett, the African American Pastors Alliance demand that the Governor appoint an African American to the last and final seat on the Broward Health Board of Commissioners.
According to Pastor Jackson “Currently there are no minorities, particularly African Americans on the hospital district’s board of commissioners. The Broward Health hospital district board does not reflect the population that it serves and should!”
The North Broward Hospital District is a public tax-payer created and supported hospital system which is the fifth largest hospital system in the nation. It is governed by seven commissioners appointed by the governor. The district, known as Broward Health, serves all of Broward north of I-595 with over 30 healthcare facilities, four hospitals, and two trauma centers. Broward Health employs close to 10,000 employees, 1,800 physicians and has an annual budget of more than two billion dollars.
The African American Pastors Alliance is comprised of congregations throughout Broward and represents tens of thousands of families in Broward’s minority community that is served by and relies on Broward Health.
