For the 23rd straight year, no taxes will be assessed to support operations
of the North Brevard County Hospital District d/b/a Parrish Medical Center (PMC).
PMC’s board of directors voted unanimously during public hearings
on Sept. 18 to establish the millage rate and budget for fiscal year 2018.
PMC is a public community hospital, and state law gives the North Brevard
Hospital District (d/b/a Parrish Medical Center) the authority to set
a tax rate to support hospital operations. However, unlike most public
hospitals, the PMC Board of Directors has for 23 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.”
