Jackson County approves hospital budget

PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) – The Jackson County Board of Supervisors approved the county hospital system’s $325 million budget without giving the system $2 million in tax dollars.

In the budget, Singing River Health System administrators promised to put $1.2 million toward the failing employee pension and projected a $700,000 profit next year, but they also asked the county for $2 million.
