ATLANTA, May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jackson Healthcare, one of the nation's largest healthcare staffing and technology companies, announced today that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has returned to the company's board of advisors.
Bush suspended his campaign for President in 2016. His return is effective immediately.
"We are honored to have a leader with such wisdom and knowledge about healthcare and public policy back on our team," said Richard L. Jackson, chairman and CEO of Jackson Healthcare. "Jeb is an innovative thinker who offers far-reaching strategic guidance to our enterprise."
Bush served as Florida's governor for two terms and was first elected in 1998. He was instrumental in cutting taxes, reforming education and restructuring healthcare programs. In each case he brought private-sector management ideas to government agencies.
The former governor said he is eager to help Jackson work through the challenges that continue to mount in the healthcare marketplace.
"I am proud to serve with a company that puts the doctor-patient relationship first," Bush said.
Jackson Healthcare is a privately held company that annually serves approximately seven million patients in 1,300 healthcare facilities nationwide. It also champions and supports local, national and international charitable work aimed at improving lives.
Bush is the head of Jeb Bush and Associates, a consulting firm that works with a range of companies, including startups to Fortune 500 companies. He and his wife Columba reside in Coral Gables, Florida.
