James Zingale Joins Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- James Zingale, Ph.D., a former state revenue department director who has extensive experience in taxation policy research, technology and the legislative appropriations process, has joined the Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida.

Zingale will serve as Executive Director of Research and Fiscal Analysis for the Alliance. In that capacity, he will work on fiscal issues related to safety net hospitals, and assist in developing health care policy for Florida.

"Jim Zingale is one of Florida's leading experts in state budget and revenue matters, legislative policy and the use of technology to enhance organizational effectiveness," said Tony Carvalho, President of the Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida. "Given the complex and challenging environment safety net hospitals are facing, we're delighted Jim is joining us. His experience will be invaluable."

Most recently, Zingale served as Interim Executive Director of the Florida Agency for Enterprise Information Technology. From 2000 to 2007, he was Executive Director of the Florida Department of Revenue, a major state agency with more than 5,400 employees and an annual operating budget of $504 million. The Department of Revenue processes over $40 billion in state revenues.

While heading the state revenue department, Zingale oversaw implementation of two monumental technology projects-a $110 million Integrated Tax Administration System, which delivered a 10-to-1 return on investment, and an $86 million Integrated Child Support System. During his tenure, the revenue department received the National Excellence Award from the LBJ School of Public Administration.

Prior to that, Zingale spent 18 years as leadership staff serving both chambers of the Florida Legislature. He held key research, policy and liaison positions as Staff Director of the Senate Finance and Tax Committee, House Appropriations Committee, and was the first Legislative Research Director of the state Division of Economic and Demographic Research.

Zingale holds a doctoral degree in philosophy and economics from Florida State University, along with a master's degree in economics and a bachelor's degree in business administration from Bowling Green State University. He is married and resides in Tallahassee.

The Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida includes the state's teaching, public and children's hospitals. While comprising just 10 percent of the state's hospitals, the 14 safety net hospital systems provide 50 percent of the state's charity care, 80 percent of the state's graduate medical education, and 67 percent of the organ transplants performed in Florida.
