Someone at Broward Health still doesn’t understand that it is a public health care system.

Public, as in county taxpayers paid $140 million last year plus millions in grants and other goodies to run it.

That tax money gives the public certain rights. Like the right to know how the system is being run.

Despite all the turmoil in the past months concerning state and federal investigations into Broward Health’s no-bid contracts approved behind closed doors, commissioners will consider at tonight’s meeting doing important business in private. They will consider evaluating Broward Health General Counsel Lynn Barrett out of the Sunshine.
