Chairman of new hospital panel is six-figure donor to Scott, GOP

Carlos Beruff, the southwest Florida home builder who will chair Gov. Rick Scott's new Commission on Healthcare and Hospital Funding, has been a steady contributor to Scott's two campaigns for governor and to the Republican Party of Florida, having written checks totaling $121,000.

Campaign finance records show Beruff donated $75,000 to Let's Get to Work, Scott's political committee and $3,000 to Scott's 2014 re-election campaign. Beruff, of Parrish, is president of Medallion Homes, which gave $40,000 to the state GOP last year and an additional $3,000 to Scott's campaign. 

Dr. Jason Rosenburg, a Gainesville microsurgeon and the only doctor among the nine commission appointees, donated $4,450 to Let's Get to Work and to Scott in the 2014 cycle.
