For the 21st straight year, no taxes will be assessed to support operations
of Parrish Medical Center (PMC). PMC’s board of directors voted
unanimously during the second of two special public hearings on Sept.
28 to establish the millage rate and budget for fiscal year 2015-2016.
PMC is a public community hospital, and state law gives the North Brevard
Hospital District (doing business as Parrish Medical Center) the authority
to set a tax rate to back hospital operations.
However, unlike most public hospitals, the Parrish Medical Center board
has for 21 years chosen not to use tax dollars as a means of funding the hospital.
“PMC serves the community’s health through compassionate and
exceptional care and is recognized as one of the nation’s best in
clinical care, patient safety and patient experience,” said PMC
Board Chairman Herman A. Cole, Jr. “We are pleased to continue to
take this position on behalf of the community we serve. In fact, PMC invests
tens of millions of dollars into North Brevard each year.”
North Brevard County Hospital District, DBA Parrish Medical Center, is
located at 951 N. Washington Avenue, Titusville, FL 32796. Parrish Medical
Center is proud to serve the patients of its district area, which includes
the area from the Volusia County line to the Beachline, SR 528.
