As Jackson delivers on a promise to expand our reach deeper into the communities we serve, we are fully dedicated to providing consistent world-class care at all of our facilities. Jackson South Medical Center has become a go-to healthcare destination in south Miami-Dade County, with high-quality, highly specialized services offered at the facility.
Over the last few years, Jackson South has undergone a tremendous transformation, with construction of a new tower and renovation to its emergency department. To show our commitment to the people of south Miami-Dade County, we will continue to invest in Jackson South.
As part of our capital plan, we will add 20 new beds to the intensive care unit, which supports specialized services throughout the hospital, including its new trauma center; modernize the labor and delivery areas to provide new families with amenities that match the quality of care we provide; upgrade the South Wing patient areas; renovate the behavioral health unit; and make improvements to the medical office building on the Jackson South campus.
We will also open a new pediatric emergency department at Jackson South, expanding the world-class care that Jackson is known for providing to pediatric patients, along with expert physicians from the University of Miami Health System.
The planned projects at Jackson South are estimated to cost approximately $49 million. Work already underway.
The construction manager for the project is Turner Construction Company. The protégé working on this project as part of Jackson’s Mentor/Protégé Development Program for small business construction companies is MCO Construction and Services, Inc.
