PMC Board Votes No Taxes for 21 Years in a Row

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.
