Jewish Health Migration in Greater Miami

By Charles R. Cohen

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1947

This piece covers health migration in Miami; in particular, it explains how the Greater Miami area is now at the stage in its development where government is still struggling with the concept of public responsibility. A very small city-supported hospital serves the needs of the people of the City of Miami and because of the limited number of beds available, it is able to offer hospital care only to residents unless an acutely serious condition exists. The piece concludes providing suggestions about how relationships with the Council of Jewish Federation and Welfare Fund and national health agencies can help address ill-advised health migration and improve local communal services.
