Jackson Health System Capital Projects
Tropical Storm Erika Update
Jackson Health System is open for business and operating as usual.
Jackson Health System, one of the nation’s largest public health systems, is in the midst of a $1.5 billion, 10-year capital plan that includes new construction projects, the renovation of existing facilities, technology upgrades, cutting-edge equipment, and infrastructure improvements. This “Jackson Miracle Building Plan” will transform Jackson into a modernized, patient-centered healthcare system that can better meet the future needs of Miami-Dade County residents and patients from around the world who travel to Jackson because of its medical expertise. Jackson’s capital plan, which is partially supported by $830 million voter-approved bond, includes renovations at every Jackson hospital, the opening of multiple urgent care centers across Miami-Dade County, a new Jackson West Medical Center campus in the City of Doral, and a new Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Hospital for The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at UHealth/Jackson Memorial.
Every element of the capital plan meets or exceeds Miami-Dade County’s high standards for inclusion, while requiring substantial participation from local certified small business enterprises and employment of local workers. The largest projects also include an innovative mentor-protégé program to help qualified small local businesses learn every element of the construction-management process for major healthcare projects. We believe this program will create a larger and more diverse pool of qualified contractors to fuel the Miami-Dade economy.
