Residents of South Miami-Dade County will be safer thanks to the provisional Level II Trauma Center at Jackson South Medical Center. The Jackson South Trauma Center* will stand on its own as a full-service, around-the-clock trauma center. But unlike other trauma centers, it will also have immediate and always-on access to the cutting-edge resources of Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial.
The dedicated trauma bays will be housed inside of Jackson South’s renovated emergency room and will be accessible to fire rescue crews by ground transportation, as well as air rescue landing on the helipad atop the ER.
UHealth trauma surgeons, including other Ryder Trauma veterans, will work alongside community physicians and Jackson South nurses and caregivers, who have been specially trained by the Ryder Trauma staff. The entire team is dedicated to providing care to patients who need lifesaving care, including those injured in motor vehicle crashes, gun violence, burns, and falls.
The new trauma center’s* medical staff will be led by expert trauma surgeons from UHealth – The University of Miami Health System, including Dr. Enrique Ginzburg, a 24-year trauma veteran and leader from Ryder Trauma, who has been named the trauma medical director of the Jackson South Trauma Center.
The standards and the expectations for trauma care at Jackson are exceptionally high for clinical quality, patient safety, and service excellence. For more than two decades, Jackson has been synonymous with providing unmatched trauma care – and now we are expanding our footprint into south Miami-Dade, an area that has seen tremendous growth.
