TALLAHASSEE - Florida Governor Rick Scott’s former health care company isn’t buying his jobs pitch.
Solantic Baptist Health Care is moving its headquarters from Jacksonville to Nashville, Tennessee.
Scott co-founded the company, but sold all his shares shortly after taking office.
Today he told reporters he’s disappointed in the company’s decision to move. “This is the best state to build businesses, whether it’s because of our AAA rating, our beaches, our weather but some people don’t agree with me.”
Scott didn’t elaborate on why Solantic is leaving; the company will continue to operate its 32 walk-in clinics in Florida.
