Fla: Shands Hospital plans $500,000 for 2005 Super Bowl effort

  1. Shands HealthCare, which runs a financially strapped Jacksonville hospital, will contribute $500,000 to the city's 2005 Super Bowl and will be the official healthcare provider. Advocates for the poor are scoffing at the idea.

    It's spending money like this "to improve hospital image/name" that SHOULD be spent on nursing salary improvements/work conditions that makes nurses blood boil and LEAVE a facility.

    Give me a break, that is not a proper way for a healthcare orginization to spend money. Let the resorts do that.
