Message from the CEO
Tropical Storm Erika Update
Jackson Health System is open for business and operating as usual.
Jackson Health System’s tagline “Miracles Made Daily” is not just a catchy phrase, but what the teams throughout Jackson Memorial Hospital do on a daily basis. The hospital has been a beacon of medical excellence and community care since it opened in 1918 as Miami City Hospital. Over its almost 100-year history, it has grown into a world-class academic medical center with a proud mission and proven success.
Jackson Memorial, an accredited, tax-assisted, tertiary teaching hospital with almost 1,500 licensed beds, is Jackson Health System’s flagship hospital. We are proud to provide a wide range of patient services, educational programs, a clinical setting for research activities, and a number of health-related community services. Our number one priority is providing everyone who walks through our doors with the Jackson Miracle Experience, which means clinical quality, patient safety, advanced technology, and service excellence. Every member of our team knows there’s no reason for us to be here without you, our patients and guests.
What truly sets Jackson Memorial apart is our unique affiliation with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, home to some of the world’s most skilled and highly regarded physicians. We are considered leaders in many of our service lines due, in large part, to University of Miami doctors working alongside Jackson’s expert nurses to provide patients with the highest quality care. Our unmatched centers of excellence include:
- Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial: One of the world’s most sophisticated and admired specialty centers, Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial is the only adult and pediatric Level 1 trauma center in Miami-Dade County. Physicians from across the globe seek out Ryder’s expertise, and it is the U.S. Army’s exclusive site for training forward surgical teams.
- The University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Burn Center: The University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Burn Center is one of the leading burn treatment facilities in the nation, and the only center in South Florida to be verified by the American Burn Association.
- Miami Transplant Institute: Miami Transplant Institute (MTI) is ranked among the busiest transplant programs in the country, and is the only one in Florida to perform every type of organ transplant. As a result, patients from all over the world come to MTI for consultation and treatment.
Our team is extremely proud of the medical care and personalized, compassionate service that we provide. In the future, Jackson Memorial will continue to attract healthcare professionals who represent the very best and brightest in medicine. I’m eager for you to be part of the Jackson Miracle Experience.
