Why are Miami taxpayers spending $400,000 on a cat sculpture at Jackson Health campus?

Abstract: When Miami-Dade County’s public health system unveils its new rehabilitation hospital next month, one of the first facilities built with the 2013 “miracle bond” issue, the four-story building will feature a state-of-the-art aquatic therapy pool, a physical therapy room with high-tech body-weight-supporting harnesses built into a track on the ceiling — and a $400,000 cat sculpture.
