Health care company names Bush to advisory board

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is joining the advisory board of a privately-held health care staffing company.

Atlanta-based Jackson Healthcare announced Tuesday that Bush had been appointed immediately to the advisory board of the company which reported $500 million in revenues in 2012 and served approximately 5 million patients nationwide.

Bush served as Florida's governor from 1999 to 2007. He is seen as a potential Republican candidate for U.S president in 2016.

Bush already serves on other corporate boards and he is the chairman and founder of the Foundation for Florida's Future. The foundation pushes for education changes that are modeled on the programs Bush put in place as governor.

Bush also runs his own consulting firm.
